Sometimes I come across a scene that’s tranquil and takes me back to Maine – through memories that time cannot erase.
Kiss of Light, an oil pastel (7×5) was done on a spur of the moment today – it’s a scene that I had pure joy painting. The surface is Mi-Teintes gray-tinted pastel paper with my hands and clay shapers the tools used for moving the oil pastels around the paper.
Hope you enjoy this quiet moment, as the last summer rays grace the water and boat ~

I can sense the tranquility in this. I loved being in Maine as a kid, fishing at the break of dawn in a cove, glorious quiet times☺️
Enjoyed your visit, thank you so much. There is something very special about living in Maine – more special are the memories when, like I, no longer there. The coves are the best – thanks again for your comment.
It is stunning dear Mary!❤️
Beautiful ,calm sea❤️
Thank you Violet for always being so generous with your words – it means a lot that you enjoyed this piece.
The light is beautiful in this painting. But it’s the sense of quietness which makes it si special.
PS: soon or later, probably later I’ll visit Maine…
Thank you so much Robert, you got exactly what attracted me to the scene – it’s quietness. That symbolizes Maine to me – yes, you should go and enjoy going back in time!
Absolutely delightful and very peaceful…
Thank you so much for your lovely comment – very nice to meet you!
And you too Mary. See you around…
Yes indeed, peaceful, tranquil and quiet it is! Love the soft and warm rays reflecting on the water surface and the boat reflection is just superbly executed! You just gave me a Zen moment where I got transported to a wonderful place and enjoyed a moment of time standing still, feeling and breathing in peace! Beautiful!
Thank you so much Eva, your words captured exactly why I painted the scene – the essence of a wide body of water with a majestic sky and quietness of the boat. Thank you for always being generous in your feedback – I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Sending back my best wishes for a wonderful weekend as well Mary! 🙂
Terrifically beautiful, Mary. Such peace, harmony, all things wonderful.
