As artists do I also love to walk in the woods, and my favorite time is just before the sun goes down. The light that plays through the trees and tall strands of grass are very evocative.
Certainly there are no end to the millions of sunset photos and paintings and so I chose to represent my version of it by being somewhat painterly. Dabs and splashes of paint, segmented and broken up. The reason for this is so that the shadows can be populated with individual colours, making the scene even more interesting to enjoy, or so I hope.
I hope you enjoy “Dusk”. It is 24”x30” oil on a cradled birch panel and it is completely dry and ready for shipping anywhere in the world.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
