Dusk Christmas Eve

Dusk Christmas Eve  8x10 oil painting

I wanted to capture a quiet peaceful mood of Christmas Eve. After weeks of the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas a feeling of relief comes,  now its time to relax and enjoy Christmas.
Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful holiday season.

Sunrise Valley Forge National Historic Park.

I painted this from photos I took a couple years ago. I wanted to try to capture the feeling of the sun slowly rising lighting up the landscape.
I used a 12"x24" canvas to emphasize the long rolling fields found here.
The moon was setting as the sun came up.
