Fleeting Light on Tugalo

Fleeting Light on Tugaloo

"Fleeting Light on Tugaloo"    14 x 18 inches   Oil on Canvas

I'm transfixed by late afternoon light, most especially during those few moments just before the sun sets when you can see the light moving, bouncing from spot to spot.  There's a radiant glow in the shadows unlike at any time during the day, not even in the mornings just as the sun is rising.

Here on the Tugaloo river I was floating in a canoe, knowing it would be dark before reaching a place to pull in, but not really caring.  A couple of other folks were paddling, so my entire attention was on the light and those radiant shadows.
