Purple shades of night

                             Twilight Zone    Oils on board   12 x 12 inches   

Twilight has a wonderful way of making a garden beautiful by highlighting blues, purples, whites and pinks.   The flowers seem to pop out in a magical way.   The transparent oils used in this painting were ideal for sculpting with the brush to make shapes and mysterious marks.  I allowed the painting to evolve using the surprise elements as a guide.  Pure fiction but it reminds me of summer evening walks.
