Have you ever seen the wonderful pink twilight sky of the Hudson River Valley ? This oil on canvas captures the beauty of that place. The waning sun casts a rosy glow upon the sky and is reflected in the body of water. A simple lone house perched on an embankment faces the water illuminated by the glowing sunset. See if you can find the figures dotted throughout the scene, which include a man with a cane, a woman and a man in a rowboat, a man carrying a sack accompanied by his dog, and five people out for an evening sail. The naïve figures give a personal touch and bring it down to earth in a practical way as the folks tend to their business. Tranquil and delightful, the painting perfectly captures a glorious summer day’s end.
