Sunset Reflections II - o/c 25" x 29"


The second in the series titled "Sunset Reflections" was inspired from the nature trails along the "Stage Coach Trail" in northwestern Illinois near Galena.

Beautifully serene autumn colors are depicted throughout the oil painting and the bright reflection of the setting sun highlights some trees and foliage not yet shadowed or hidden behind the hill or dense foliage.

While some leaves have already dropped from the trees to lay at the base of their trunks, one can almost imagine the crinkling sound under one's feet before jumping across the narrowest part of the stream to walk upward to view the setting sun at the horizon.

The painting is in the beginning of the drying phase and near the holidays, will be available for viewing.
