Nice work! How on earth did you create that blue glow? It's great!

Karen said...

It's so minimal, and needs nothing more...

What a great, calming painting on the heels of your bright orange beauty. I love being able to see them juxtaposed on my computer screen!

I see landscape and night here, and endless, bottomless, beautiful blue.

This is really beautiful, Jala - I love the blues and the intriguing glow.

Your pastels are just fabulous. I really like the mysterious glow coming up from behind the horizon -- almost like deep dusk peeking out from beneath some heavy clounds.

Thanks, all of you.

Donald, you know what, that's what it was. Not kidding! A few weeks ago, I had just left the building of the college where I teach till 8 pm, and looked over to the mountains, and there was...well, this unearthly blue glow with dark clouds over most of it... I tried to hold it in my mind, at least the basics of what I wanted to retain, and I think it was the next day or a couple of days later that I did the pastel. I guess I did something right, since you "got" it!!
