At The End Of The Day

good evening everyone

After Recovering from Sophia's Birthday bash which i can asure you we had one very happy two year old  here bless her she wouldnt give in and have a nap i  think she was frightened of missing some thing....

I thought i would paint a modern picture for my living room today this is a very big canvas for me 36"x 24"
i have never painted anything so large but had great fun slapping on the paint it does have some slight impasto work done  but nothing to really see
had no idea why i did it in reds but im very pleased with how it turned out............... well i can live with it lol.......
its certainly brightened up a very plain wall
im going to call this At The End Of The Day hence the title .it reminds me of those late summer evenings  just as the sun set.

thank you for popping by
