"Late Afternoon Glow"
24"x 24" oil on canvas
The Alaskan winter days have beautiful lighting. It's either looking like sunrise or sunset most of the day, unless it's plain 'ol darkness...then it's just dark.
This painting was done from a reference photo taken at 3:30 pm. The sun just rides along the horizon in December. This glass building was glowing. If I turned around, I wouldn't be able to see the sun from my vantage point....but this building was reflecting everything from the southern skyline.
Traffic....if your a night lights junkie like me, traffic in the winter up here is pretty beautiful.
And if I'm not wearing my glasses... all those lights have a large halo effect.
Of course, this painting and the colors are filtered through my heart and mind...
a little bit amped up...... cause that's what I see.
Artists, don't be a journalist with your art......be a poet.
Show the world your heart. Don't be scared... show us what you're made of.
I love that about art.
Thanks for looking!!
