Dusk at Fort Mountain State Park

I painted this plein air at the beginning sunset at Fort Mountain State Park in Chatsworth, Georgia. I captured the light and shadow as they danced on the fence, rocks and trees. While it was light when I started, by the time I was finished, I was in almost total darkness in my hike back to my car.

My Quiet Place

In a world filled with noise

Everyone talking

Is anyone listening?

I have my quiet place

Always near a towering trunk

A person or two coming and going

Enjoying their quiet place

I marked the first day of fall by painting a hot day that still feels like summer.  This peaceful alcove is one of my favorite spots in my community because it’s always quiet.
