Eastern Dusk

Eastern Dusk by Karen Gadient, 2014

A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east. ― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

  1. So beautiful. It speaks to me in a thousand ways.

  2. What a gorgeous tribute to Streinbeck’s words.

  4. The red patch caught my eye before drifting to Steinbeck’s quote – great combination.

  5. You should have designed the cover of that book. πŸ™‚

  6. This is in the top five of everything I’ve seen by you, Karen.

  7. John Steinbeck’s writing is just so good, I love that quote! This is wonderful art Karen, so moody, dusky and yet full of vibrant colour – such a perfect combination! πŸ™‚ I love tree silhouettes too, they never fail to catch my eye.

  8. I really like the tree and it being silhouette.

  9. I love this painting. Really beautiful πŸ™‚

  11. I almost see almost a heart shape, with myriad veins and tributaries…

  12. This is a gorgeous piece of art, Karen!

  13. Oh, Wow, Karen…you’ve out done yourself this time. This is fantastic, I love that you are using this to help raise money for Liam. Seriously, the love around this art work is completely justified, simply sublime.

    • Aw, thanks so much, Iain. πŸ™‚ Kia Ora.

      • AHH! Kia Ora! Wow, you know some Maori! You are my favourite! I’m hoping to have a closer look at your other works…just got a bit busy as I was on my comment run this morning

        • I became crazy about New Zealand years ago and would love to (and will one day) visit. I picked up a little Maori during Maori Language Week after reading an article in the Herald. I’m also a fan of the All Blacks and am occasionally known to attempt a haka. πŸ˜‰

        • Wow, how did I not know this? You are a amazing. The all blacks are pretty easy to love, they are just so dominant. Wow, any idea where you would like to visit? If you come to Dunedin Tam and I could show you the sights, and I’m sure a free bed πŸ™‚ haha, I would love to see one of your Hakas

          Oh, one question, from your perspective as someone who sees NZ from the outside what made you fall in love?

        • The All Blacks might be easy to love, but with rugby not being popular here in the States, it’s difficult to see games. The cost of traveling so far will keep us from visiting for a few more years, alas! I’m sure we’d find hotels, but we’d love to be shown around. πŸ™‚ The short version of why I love New Zealand: it’s vastly different from dry-and-oceanless Arizona, plus I have a passion for native/tribal culture and the Maori are a beautiful people.
