" Red sky at night, Sailors delight... "
Orange and blue sunset.
The sun sets on the marsh in an Autumn sky,
Bare tree limbs silhouetted by the Salmon orange blaze as the last light of day departs from the azure blue sky.
It has a surreal quality to it.
About this painting.........
I guess I should leave you to your own conclusions on how you interpret an image through your own eyes.
But sometimes, I think things require some explaining to make more sense.
This started out as another version of one of my favorite marshy spots.
If your lucky enough to live by such an evocative natural landscape area, you know how it tugs at your heart and helps you find your center of balance again when your own vision gets out of focus.
A few minutes of peace and serenity to be surrounded by only the calls of nature.
So I returned to my spot, as I often do.... when I need to find my peace.
As I was painting this watercolor it started to take its own twists and turns - they always do; it is watercolor and water just has a mind of it's own.
Just a little study of tree, always fascinated by their complex twists and turns.
After struggling to try to maintain my original vision - I finally gave in...
and let it speaks it peace.
Hence the name of the image - " Day is done".
It is about life, & love. Our ancestors, loss, and the never ending renewal of life.
And fear, and faith. And how powerful those emotions can be.
The emotions all twisted and entwined, and our perception of things meant to be.
I'm sure you have your own mixed emotions, but when I need answers - I go out into nature. The cycles of life, the beauty of the rise and fall will always reassure me .
And as a wise friend often says; " All is well, and all is meant to be."
Fine Art America "watermark" will NOT appear on your print. It is for Internet display purposes only.
Fine Art quality prints come in a variety of sizes with many custom framing options to choose from.
Museum quality stretched canvas prints are my preference and come ready to hang on the wall.
Greeting cards - are a generous 5" x 7" in size and can be printed with your own personalized message.
Cards also come in packs of 10 and 25 and are priced accordingly for multi purchase.
*** Greeting cards do tend to print darker than Fine Art quality prints ***
