I painted Glory of Morning and Glory of Evening as a pair. Both explore the subtleties of transitional light, when the sky flames with a special radiance, when colors are heightened and shadows dance on the ground. But Glory of Evening is as different from its companion-piece as sunset is from sunrise. The dust of a busy day, and its low-lying clouds, reflect the violet of sunset. That violet radiance colors the garden flowers, deepening their hues. Such glorious evenings as this lay a purple cloak upon the land... and every home becomes a castle.
