It was warm today. Clouds pushed through this afternoon on a cool, light breeze. After sunset the breeze sent a little chill into the air as it got dark. Still it was way warmer than it was a few weeks ago.
The houses and outbuildings across the field caught my eye with their back door lights and kitchen windows all lit and glowing. It was another day I stayed in the neighborhood and painted what is nearby and familiar. I’m trying to see how many different paintings I can make from the views of my neighborhood. This collection of house and street lights and the patterns they made among the dark shapes of the trees added just the right bit of mystery and softness to the landscape. I could make out the shapes of some buildings where the light hit them, or where window lights glowed. Other buildings faded into the darkness with only a hint that they were there.
