This is a lovely dusk painting Susan! I have been following your blog for around a year and your work surprises me everytime. Your colors are so rich and a definite head turner!

It is lovely. One of these images that make you stop. Then look again. Go away and then go back to check if it was really that good. yes.

Thanks for writing, everybody. I really appreciate your comments. I like these night scenes, and they seem to strike a chord with others, too--must be a mood we all have, in this transition time of day. Often I'll want to record a dusk landscape that's I've only had time to just glimpse, as the light is fading so quickly--but the mood and impression remains. I'm planning a series of night landscape oils--here's the first:

I love how you neutralized the darks and grayed down the color without losing it.
Great one.
