“Sunset Shadows February” by Sally Ladd Cole. This reminds us that although it’s winter, spring is close as the sun is with us longer. It is showing off it’s warmth and brightness. The melt has begun and we are seeing rivers and streams beginning their break for the sun as well. Sally Ladd Cole with this painting has captured this moment beautifully and you want to be there in that moment.
Artist Statement “When painting I try to portray my sense of wonder at the color, grace, infinite changeability, harmonies, and contrasts found in the country side around me. I now split my time between New Hampshire and our new home in Blue Hill Maine, where I observe with great concern the ever dwindling fields, farms, marshes, and forests that I grew up loving and taking for granted.
Through my paintings I hope to bring awareness to the irreplaceable beauty of this rural country and open Atlantic shoreline. These everyday scenes of marshes, meadows, forests, and farmland, so filled with sun and shadow, color, powerful contrasts, and overall natural grace, that I find so much inspiration in, are becoming increasingly rare.”
