Manna Gum at Golden Hour, Pipers Creek

Oil painting of a eucalypt in front of a distant mountain range.
Apparently the "golden hour" is a photographers' term for the period shortly before sunset (and shortly after sunrise, which isn't what's depicted here).  Attempting to represent what might otherwise be captured in the click of a button is perhaps more accurately called, in painters' terms, the rush hour.

Oil on canvas board, 10" x 8"
