Setting Sun in an Impressionistic Sky
Original Oil on Panel 16" x 12"
(framed in Maple wood)
This time of evening is magical. The light is fading fast and the colors change rapidly. Every object in the sky is either illuminated by the sun or cast in the darkness of its own silhouette. The light on the clouds moves from being lit from above to being lit from underneath in a matter of seconds. As the sun descends further and further toward the horizon, lavenders appear, and peaches, and soft pinks. The sky takes on an bruised appearance, and finally, the ceruleans arrive and ascend upward, till they meet the night sky and the stars high above.
