Dusk is when we can still see the horizon line and
Although our fiery sun no longer can burn our eyes with its brilliance
Light remains to color the slowly darkening sky.
Land loses definition.
Natural sounds mute, then vanish, as animals settle to sleep, perhaps to dream.
Only the brightest stars and planets are yet visible.
It is a most beautiful time.
Perhaps these paintings will inspire viewers to stop
And watch this ethereal transitory state between day and night.
