“Evensong” landscape oil painting by Emily Jeffords

This is the last in the short painting-a-day collection and my goodness, this painting “Evensong”, totally has my heart.

“Evensong” landscape oil painting by Emily Jeffords

When have humans not been romanced by the expanse of open space?

As much of a city girl as I am (or have become) the liberty of space refreshes something deep inside of me and seems to fill up my soul with quiet.    Do you feel the same?

An “Evensong” is sung as a prayer; a celebration of the evening, thankfulness for the day, and praise for of the goodness and grace of God.

The notes drift smoothly through the open windows of an English chapel, drenching the landscape with peace, serenading the sheep, calming minds of people nearby.  Totally serene, am I right?

This landscape is also full of those calming, live-giving notes: cool and warm jewel tones made even more alluring by the soft, feathery sky and the deepness in the ground.  So poetic and yet so simple.

18×24 inches, oil on gallery wrapped canvas (has extra thick sides and does not need to be framed).  Evensong will be added to my shop in one hour (noon, EST) and will be $200 (instead of $400)   www.EmilyJeffords.com

Most days you can find me, in the studio with my little girls, speckled in oil paint (drinking too much coffee), creating artwork for collectors around the world and collaborating with select brands. Check out my artwork on EmilyJeffords.com
