Today’s painting is a commission for a friend, so it’s larger, and the first landscape I’ve done in quite awhile. When I remember how I used to cry and tantrum while attempting to paint all the nuances of light on coulees, well, lets just say that I’m truly grateful that I can now approach it with a smidge of confidence. Having been raised with this very landscape I can truly say that I can feel it in my bones. It is such a joy, FINaLLY, to be able to paint it.
When I go to visit Polly, I have to go fairly early in the afternoon; the sun goes down about 4:30! Yesterday as I watched, the sun went down and the moon came up as the geese circled and practiced their take-offs and landings in the river. What a dramatic sight they make as they fly past a sliver of moon hanging in the darkening sky.
