house at twilight


This is a view of one of the houses across the street from us. I sat on the porch swing and drew and drew as the shape steadily became more of a silhouette against the evening sky. The drawing paused for conversations with a neighbor, with greeting my husband's band members arriving for practice, with my nephew and his fiancee saying hello after taking their dog for a walk, with my daughter talking to me about her first day of school tomorrow... and the night sky grew brighter and then darker. Now insect and city traffic sounds mix with the band's chords as I type upstairs. It still feels like summer to me.

What a perfect drawing / painting to go with your description of the summer evening!
