Late Spring 24 Last Year___9pm New Moon

"Late Spring 24 Last Year___9pm New Moon"
I dedicate this painting to my High School classmates (Class of 1977)...see yesterday's post about why...
For my latest round of "24 paintings in 24 hours", I painted a "Late Spring Day Last Year on the Farm"....a few weeks ago, on the last week of Spring.This is looking east at sunset with the crescent moon over our nearby neighborhood....there is something very intriguing about sunset and a new seems to speak of eternal things like life and death and even hope...
I dedicate this today, because we had a memorial service this morning to honor the families and memory of our friends who have died since high school. What a wonderful time of memory and reflection...just the right kind of church service that brings hope and makes you THINK about your own life and it's "finish"...I saw many hearts touched this morning, including my own,...I would love to hear your comments...sorry for the unusually lengthy note :)
God Bless you!!!

"Last Year on the Farm" paintings are documenting my last year where I have lived most my life, near Austin, TX. These will be offered for sale in a few months, when our last year is up. Please ask me if you want a copy of the story. If you see one you like, PLEASE CONTACT V....Vaughan to have a first dibs shot at it. A list is kids get first pick! ;)

I love your analogy about the sunset and the new moon. I think the skyies are endlessly facinating.
This painting just pops. I can feel the street lights glowing in the dusk.
It's like I can step into your paintings.
