The last light of the evening - burning brightly against the darkening sky.   It all resembles hot embers still glowing in a dying fire.  What a beautiful artistic display of light, lighting the sky and horizon with one last blaze.
For me, it is a final gift for the evening - the Creator Artist sends His benediction of beauty with the promise of new light in the new day.

Some Exciting News

 Just sold!  
          It is very exciting whenever I sell my work!   I make it with that in mind!   This drawing, Curvature, was made about 6 years ago.  It is colored pencil on paper.  I posted it and then that was it..... until a little earlier this month when I was contacted by a design firm in San Francisco with a client who was interested in using it in their advertising and packaging.  So with some further negotiations, an agreement has been made and the original work has been sold.   
               And you just might be seeing it if you enjoy a good cup of coffee at Peet's!  I'm not entirely sure exactly how it will be used, but I'm excited that it will be used!

Its a sunny summer day with blue skies and big fluffy clouds that float lazily along.  Summer also means fields of flowers - and crickets and cicadas. 
 This painting depicts such a day.  It is ready to frame and  bring a touch of summer indoors.
