Sunset journey

Missing my canoe...5 1/2" by 11" watercolor, 140 # d'Arches
Heading for shore at the end of day. 
The water is still, the birds roosting, the branches and leaves still without a breath of breeze. 
The brilliant, varied colors of a setting autumn sun. 
Alone in a canoe, the only sound the dip of the paddle and the faint, brief gurgle of the wake. 
Life.
