Illuminated Peaks, 36 x 60, oil on canvas

October has always been my favorite month. It seems like the skies are more interesting, especially towards the end of day. Recently I noticed how the evening light was illuminating house peaks in an area known as Friendship. The idea of using cast shadows from objects outside of the image is something I've used plenty of times. Here the opposite side of the street shows us a street light, trees and roof lines. It creates the illusion there is much more going on but is only implied.


  1. And the weather has been amazingly nice for about a week, making for great light on everything from house peaks to leaves.

  2. Love the sky and how you have captured the late afternoon sunlight. Great shadows too.
