Charon on Ball Pond

As night approaches
a lone boatman 
ferries across Ball Pond
the end of day
and summer.

This is an 18" x 24" acrylic painting on paper, depicting nightfall on Ball Pond in Danbury, Connecticut. The lone boatman paddling across the darkening water, reminds me of Charon of the Greeks Myths, ferrying souls across the River Styx.
