'Evening Ferry in the Islands'


'Late on a September afternoon
 with updrafts of August like warmth.
 High on an island mountain cliff 
Turkey vultures and Ravens passing so close below
 you hear the rush of air through their wings.
Far below in the distance the ferries ply their trade, 
but up here on the edge of this glacial sculpture 
the silence tingles on your skin.
The scent of pine and fir warmed by summer like heat
 is thick in the air with Raven talk,
 breath deeply...'

Jeffrey, this painting is just gorgeous! I'm a bit of a sucker for aerial views, not sure why, but i love the way you have played up the shape-making in this one, and the light is so perfect too.
