These paintings are an invitation to savor the summer twilight--those fleeting, magical moments when the sky offers a final brilliant and luminous gesture before giving into the night.

In the wide and flat landscape of the Midwest, where this daily spectacle is laid out as a gift in front of us, I find myself compelled to take pictures, as so many of us do. The paintings that follow provide the opportunity to see what might otherwise be missed. They are like keepsakes.
