Sunset- click picture to bid

The clouds where looking awesome this evening so I grabbed my gear and headed off to Kelders fields, not far from where I live. It seemed the only way I could get the vortex bright enough was to put a dark object in front of it. In this way the silhouette actually increases the intensity of light.

Hudson Boatyard

I ventured back to the New Hamburg Batyard and found this view, which I painted yesterday - as before, I'm intigued by the color and long shadows of the late afternoon sun. Boats that are in dry dock or beached have always fascinated me- perhaps its their shapes , but maybe its also some kind of metaphorical symbol- I'm not sure.
