From a friend's photograph. I like the compositional form of having a dark and shadowed foreground leading to a lighter background. It has an emotional feel to it - "things are dark here, but it looks brighter ahead." I worked on losing edges and adding softness. I also wanted to suggest a twilight with late sun perhaps behind the far hill. This painting will be on the Vashon Art Studio Tour THIS WEEKEND! My paintings are at Stop # 23 in Dockton.
