Lonesome time

"When shadows grow long," 9 x 12 acrylic on canvas board, brushes and palette knives

The
end of a month, the end of a day, "When shadows grow long," it's easy to feel lonesome, to dwell on memories, and people and places and the past, fleeting as the sun and the years.

Wide-open spaces, the sounds of silence,  and remote gates add to the moods. 

Thus this week's acrylic painting, a back porch creation from the images in my mind, from those places, people, spaces, silence and gates that crowd my memory. 

A study in contrasting colors as wide open spaces of  New Mexico, the Southwest and the vast skies beckon.
