Evening Commute

Evening Commute
9 x 12 in., oil on panel

After a fairly lengthy absence from posting for me, I offer this.  Evening Commute was born of a trip to California last summer--I posted a warm-up for it a few posts back (In the Tall Grass).  I painted this one, a 9 x 12, at the start of this month.  It's been a long absence from posting, but I think over that period I've developed some confidence about my painting style that I attribute to time, practice, and a modicum of success when I needed a shot in the arm.  I feel really good about this one, and I want to keep it to remind me of where I want to be.  I hope you like it.

I hope to post more regularly going forward--many goals for the new year, and much to accomplish!  Thank you for following. :)

Hi Julie,

I love the brilliant red, and the abstract feel of the brushstrokes. This is my evening commute when I teach, just add about one million tons of snow!!! ;-)

XOXOXO (Glad you're back.)
