Five O’clock Shadows

oil on panel / 12 x 12 inches / available

I had a sheer ribbon with a gradation of color going from pink to gold and then back again to pink. It was gorgeous. Thinking that the transparency would make interesting shadows, I took it outside in the late afternoon and laid it out on the sidewalk. It worked! The shadows were great! The only problem was a slight breeze that kept blowing the ribbon down the walk. I had a hard time keeping up with it so I could get the photograph I wanted.
