Harmonious Thoughts

Harmonious Thoughts
acrylic on canvas
20" x 24"
Available for purchase at Revolution Gallery, Issaquah, WA

This is actually a departure from my Montana paintings, although it doesn't look like it. We came upon this sunset in southeastern Washington.

The texture is more subtle in this piece than in my other landscapes, and I used some pearl paint to give it a glow.

"Harmonious thoughts, a soul by truth refined,
Entire affection for all human kind.
How pleasant, as the sun declines, to view
The spacious landscape change in form and hue!
Here, vanish, as in mist, before a flood
Of bright obscurity, hill, lawn, and wood;
There, objects, by the searching beams betrayed,
Come forth, and here retire in purple shade..."
-William Wordsworth, "An Evening Walk"
