Matisse was here?

Late afternoon December 24, 2011
On the south facing end of my garden the view looked as though Matisse had come to visit.  At this time of year the sun is at its most southerly place in the sky creating new images across Puget Sound. So low was the setting sun that a shadow of the trees, on the top of the hill across the water from us, was projected onto the water looking just like an impressionist painting. It reminded us of his paintings of the gardens at Giverny.  And then .... it was gone.
