This skyscape was painted from a friend’s photograph of a sunset across the Pacific Ocean. A bit of a departure for me as my usual sun-over-water paintings are sunrises. Most west coasters think only of the sun going down into the water – but I live on a small stretch of land where it not only comes up over the water, but at about a month around winter solstice appears to come up out of the water. (I just have to be weird.) And of course this had to be a weird size of stretcher bars I up-cycled from somewhere I can’t remember.
