I titled this painting "Last Light" because I wanted to suggest that low, golden glow of a setting sun. I also could have titled it, "First Light"' suggesting the same golden glow of a rising sun.
Think of it which ever way you prefer.
The sun is spilling it's warm light onto the young man and the sand where he sits. It also casts its spell on the ebbing tide and rolling surf. A mix of colors emerges...yellow, orange, pink, aqua, even a soft lavender.
I love painting the light. The light and the colors it creates are what gives a painting its character.
Memorial Day is the official kick-off for the summer season and while many families will spend the day grilling hamburgers and playing games, more than a few of us will head to the beach.
In my painting "Last Light", a young boy lingers just a while longer near the swirling foam as the sun sets, illuminating the sand and his tanned skin in a golden glow.
I can imagine his mother gathering the blankets, sun screen, and toys while his father grabs the cooler and folding chairs. They call his name. He pretends not to hear. "Just a little longer" he thinks to himself.
"Just a little longer."
