    Twilight time is the golden hour – when sunlight turns magical. When the Sun is close to the horizon, its light appears warmer and softer.  This adorable baby donkey is tired beyond words and finds comfort between mom’s ears as shades of night approaches.  He enjoys the shimmering last quality warm rays of the sunset.   

    The deepening shadows surrender to the setting sun causing everything to be washed in the blue shades of evening. The donkey’s coats are warmly washed with the soft light of evening. The sun is setting behind the mesas in brilliant blue, purple, orange and yellow hues. And so the evening begins. This is a picture perfect ending to a long day.

    The artist can also be contacted at www.ilenereed.com.

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.

    An Incredibly Welcoming Table

    The warm glow depicted in this otherwise ordinary interior space is masterfully executed. Great use of triadic color harmony, and clearly directed light and shadow make this painting work so well. I just love this painting!

    Ascension Through 3 Worlds

    What I love about this painting, BESIDES the incredible attention to detail, careful depiction and rendering, is the symbolic flow of elements. Below is rock, hues of gray, replete with pattern and texture, but devoid of life. Next is the verdant green of the land, alive and vibrant with color. Finally, the element of life, birds in flight, surrounded by clouds and the ether beyond. The fence dividing the land and the air is broken, symbolically conveying the boundary yet connection between the land and all life.
