There are times when paintings find their new homes before the paint is dry. Such is the case with this 8 x 10 inch oil on canvas END OF DAY WITH ARBUTUS completed four days ago. Packaged carefully to protect the still-tacky surface the painting is on its way to a new collector in British Columbia, Canada. The buyer had been waiting for months watching for “their” painting to come off my easel. It finally happened. Love at first sight. This painting was sold before it could be release officially here or in the Artsy Home online gallery.

END OF DAY WITH ARBUTUS 8 x 10 oil on canvas
My comments as I set this painting aside to “rest” on four days ago….The body and weight of the evening light just before it dipped over the far hill was enchanting. The eyes were doing tricks as they saw into the shadows and recognized the reflected light. It was a bit of a Kandinsky (Russian Painter) moment where in a fleeting decision I dipped into the light blue to trap the last of the light onto my canvas – a wrong colour that felt just right. I liked it then and I like it now.
