Oil on Board
On Sunday, everyone was asleep, even my husband. The sun was brightly shinning and it was hot compared to previous days. The sky was perfect and the light was perfect. I snuck out onto my front porch and did this painting. I look at this view everyday and dream about painting it but painting with two small children in the midst of toys is never a good idea no matter what the light or view is like. Well, I must have done something right because I was given my chance.
Here is my theory on the fall sky, in case you might be wondering. It was brought up by a friend who asked what makes the sky so different in the fall? Well, I think it is because the color of the leaves in the fall and the different direction of the sun makes the contrast of the clear blue sky vibrate against the color of the orange tinged trees. The combination makes the trees and sky pop against each other.
