From the Desert Sonnet Series.
Twilight in the desert is especially beautiful, as the promise of dark skies scattered with stars slowly becomes reality.
The orientation of this piece is quite intentional - some viewers may sense a horizon line along the botanical form, and want to view it turned 90°. For me, that straight line reads like the straight road that crosses the desert, with the flora running alongside. It's about day giving way to night - a sequence, like turning the page of a book, which is a left/right thing, not an over/under thing.
A companion piece, As This Days End Begins #2 is shown in some of these images. They look happy side by side, but are listed for purchase separately
