Parkway Series #123 12 x 16 oil Sold
From this Parkway overlook, downtown Roanoke can be seen to the left. I was taking the photo almost directly into the setting sun and the shadows seemed to revolve from the direction of the sun like the spokes of a wheel. The red behind the trees gives warmth to a cold sunset. Something about this painting reminds me of a Bruegel landscape. He was a (14th c.) Flemish painter who painted snowy Alpine landscapes.
