Trail Light



Light in the Forest
There's a beautiful little piece of woods near us, called Rolling Hill Park. Lots of meandering trails. This one leads past an old, roofless ruin. I was lucky enough to be there yesterday just when the light was filling the old stone structure so that it absolutely glowed! Fits in by chance with today's Illustration Friday theme of Trail.

You've really captured the sense of light and shadow well. A lovely spot!

Nancy -- I like this painting a lot. Could you do more of these less-finished paintings? This one has such a strong sense of passion and mystery. Don't let your technique steamroll your passion!
