    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.

    The artist's description of this scene caused me to look further at the tiny details in the background. The dots of paint which loosely define the buildings are so thoughtful and intriguing. This is a fantastic work of art!

    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.
