Magic Hour

Product Information

Order "Magic Hour" acrylic painting

The hour when darkness settles is my favorite of the day. All the colors calm and simplify, while the sky riots in a progression of hues… changing attitude subtly every few moments… and watching is like hearing a grand orchestra play Beethoven. The first stars shimmer, and all the world seems so close and so possible.

I used simple white line for the mystical additions because sometimes it seems you can see magic if your eyes were only strong enough to detect the translucency. The icons symbolize different facets of the wonder I experience (and yep… that’s a gnome under a toadstool).
