End of Summer Color

This time of year, the sky takes on different hues that feel more urgent in their brilliance. The rush to capture a sunset on canvas seems more purposeful to me. I was born at the beginning of the fall in October. The last days leading up to my birthday always seem more compelling. I find myself swooning at the view while standing at the fence a few feet from the cliff edge in Palisades Park, Santa Monica. If you haven’t been to this fence to take in a sunset, it’s hard to imagine the layers of colors and the intensity in the last days of summer and the beginning of fall.

  1. Gorgeous piece, Trish. I hope to sometime see your work, in-person! I’ve made it out as far west as Phoenix, so who knows? I would love to blog about some California sunshine (and painters!) Congrats also on your recent showing.

  2. Hi Trish, The view has inspired a beautiful painting full of colour and intensity.

  3. Love the colors to lead us into fall.

    This is so beautiful. Thank you for liking The Heron’s Path. I love your work. I love art but I’m a real amateur (in a good meaning of the word). But you are truly gifted.
