A June Evening
Oil on Linen
The greens are so abundant this time of year. June is my favorite summer month. I love the freshness of the landscape. The foliage isn't overgrown yet. The air is soft and fragrant. It would be June all summer if I had my way. I know that the hot humidity is coming here to Chicago. That's when we're constantly watering our flowers and watching the temperature before heading out the door. But June is perfect, even though we've had our share of rain.
I used green in the sky of this landscape. It also has magenta mixed with naples yellow. These colors, to me, are the colors of June. The colors of contentment.
