As the Light Shifted 1996

Those beautiful wildflowers of Langley lived many times, in quite a lot of my compositions. I remember during a break from that watercolour, the Wildflowers of Langley 1996. The sun began to set behind the row of large pine trees along our property line. My studio darkened rapidly. And on a whim; I created this almost abstract painting with its sketchy qualities.

This is wonderful! I really like the contrast in this piece and how the flowers seem to glow. They pop off the page. The color scheme works really well for this. Great work.

Hi Emaxian,
Thanks for your kind words. I really enjoyed that hike and collection of those wildflowers that day;it does later show in the painting.
