Dusk landscape oil painting; Between the Dark and the Daylight

This new oil painting is of the countryside near Staunton, Virginia. It captures my favorite time of day when the evening sky puts on a brilliant show.  It has been quite a while since I've been able to actually complete a studio oil painting. What can I say, it's been a hell of a summer! But I'm gearing up for the fall season so I am back at it. This painting is one of a new series I'm working on for a fall show about the "luminous landscape".  The title comes from a poem by Longfellow called "The Children's Hour" (one of my mother's favorite and oft quoted poems.)
