Sunset

I'm in love with the pinks in this little study. This particular sunset was this summer in Wyoming. I've had this painting for a bit, and am ready to try it larger. Sometimes I have to live with a painting a while to process what it is I like about it and where I want to take it. I'm sure this is not profound, but I've noticed how good it feels sometimes to live with a piece for a while before working a larger version. Then again, sometimes I'm ready the same day.

I hope the new year is treating you well, Julie! I agree - those soft pinks really make this a stand-out piece. It'll be a treat to see it in a large format, too.

Nice brushwork and subtle color palette.

A very peaceful scene with such atmosphere. You must've painted like a fury to catch the moment before it was gone.
