Golden Hour

Golden Hour

This image holds special significance for me, portraying a majestic quality in the Sandhill crane and her habitat. My intention was to capture the innate sense of belonging that resonates universally—evoking a connection to nature that transcends individual experiences and speaks to the shared essence of all living beings.

The scene is set in an autumnal wetland, with tall reeds and grasses surrounding the crane in a mix of greens, yellows, reds, and oranges, suggesting the changing colors of the foliage. In the background, trees with autumn-hued leaves of yellow, gold, and orange create a warm, rich tapestry of colors that evoke a serene and peaceful atmosphere.

The painting captures the elegance of the crane and the beauty of a natural, autumnal setting, utilizing a palette of warm colors that seem to glow with a soft, internal light. Shadows and highlights are applied to give depth and realism to the scene. The water's surface is depicted with subtle reflections and gentle ripples, adding to the tranquil feeling of the piece.
