For so long the view from my work space was either a wall or a fence. Surely, I thought, with this beautiful view as inspiration I will be getting my work done in half the time. The problem is it has such a calm, soothing effect that I find myself wanting to just stare at it ……and stare at it some more.
Even though I know there will be many other evening views such as this I find myself wanting to capture each one at the perfect fleeting moment in time. I was absolutely mesmerized by the way the hills looked this particular evening. On our side of the valley everything was beginning to darken as the sun slipped behind the western hills. The sun still shone across the eastern hills creating a soft glow as it went as if to light the path to some magical hidden treasure. It produced a wonderful painterly effect and if I didn’t know better, I would swear those hills were the work of a master water color artist.
