'Last Light Botany Bay'

"The quiet is broken only by the small waves being pushed
ashore by the incoming tide.
You can sense something deeper in the cool stillness.
Soon the coming dusk will envelope the world
where you stand looking...and listening.
Yet you delay leaving,
though the trail back is long and growing ever darker.
Then, raven's call disturbs your reverie
and reluctantly you turn away from the sea 
and head for the trail."
Oil on wood panel 6 x 8.
Your thoughts &  comments are always appreciated.

Hi there Jeffrey!... This wonderful landscape captures perfectly ... the reverie that we plein air folk seek out...feel fully... and are reluctant to leave!

The golden... rich light that you always infuse into your paintings... is nothing short of spectacular... so much akin to the real light! No easy task!

Good painting!
Warmest regards,

I can hear them! Yes, I would delay leaving that place, for sure. I'm glad you are listening to nature. It's voice is comforting and profound.

Beautiful work again, Jeffrey.
