late sun,early moon

oil on canvas 8x10"

summer solstice and the evenings are so fine,
these hills in front of our house are catching the last sun,
you can just make out the house of our neighbours on the top left...

You are very lucky with that views from your house.

I love that sky, with that variations in the colors of the clouds. It´s time to change the wallpaper again.

Must be nice to have all that space between you and your neighbors! ;-)
Aaaah yes... Your painting evokes the sensuousness of a fiery summer day slowly easing into majestic colors of dusk.
