Night Anchorage

 Night Anchorage
12" x 16"  oil on canvas

This is the latest painting off the easel.  Its a smaller piece 12" x 16" which is a good size that doesn't take too long to paint or cause too much stress in process - usually.  

Its funny as whatever size I paint, invariably someone wants the opposite in size.  If I paint large, they want small, if I paint small they need large.  So I continue to create a mix of sizes that meet a variety of likes.  Painting a variety of sizes keeps the process interesting for me, allowing different compositions and less intense painting time.

I liked the time of day for this painting.  Twilight is truly the magic hour for artists where colours start to fade and the sun creates warmth on subjects that it hits as its sets.   I still have a need to create some night paintings, hopefully next year.
