When I paint dusk pieces I generally use a burgundy background. Lately, the introduction of white at the horizon line has , I think, improved these pieces as they have a better color balance. I'd show you a piece--in fact, I have resized it and adjusted the color in photoshop just for that purpose. Only, for some reason, Blogger won't let me upload. Hopefully, it is just some techno-glitch that has nothing to do with me and I will be able to upload the image later.

Turns out it was just me being stupid. The upload window had gotten hidden behind several other windows. My apologies!

We're off to Albuquerque, for the New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair. It opens tomorrow at 10. So, today is a full one--pack the van, pack ourselves, get Bug to Don & Judy's, drive to Albuquerque, check in to the hotel and the show, unload and set up! Whew! I'm already tired. I think the hotel doesn't provide internet so I probably won't post until Monday.


  1. I had an issue with Blogger recently about upload. It resolved itself in about an hour. I like this new painting.

    Good luck at the fair. And look forward to seeing all your new work at Artsfest in two weeks

  2. I agree that the white adds to the balance - it really makes the picture pop! Your sky seems a bit different than your usual work, as well, as it reminds me of the Northern Lights.

    I could stare at your work for hours - I just find it so beautiful...

  3. Lovely! I love the white and agree that it pops. Good luck at the show.

  4. That is an amazing image...

  5. Thanks for all the nice comments, guys!
