6" x 4" original watercolor $250.00

Replicating and interpreting a sunset
especially one filled with color as this one,
has been a passion of mine. The subtle
changes in yellow to orange against the
purple, overwashed with thalo blue, make
this watercolor team with life. Notice how
I've taken all the hues in the sky and echoed
them in the lake below. I have created a "sky"
tapestry to guide you into the setting sun.
Marvelous...sunsets are a gift from God.
I placed a clear satin non-yellowing polymer
over this painting.You may not be able to see
in the photo but it gives a finish similar to
an oil painting.

We returned home about 8:30 last night, damp
and tired. It was another rainy day and we both
had had enough. So it was early to bed. You would
think that after working 4 straight days outside at a show
we could take a day off. But, no... there was laundry
to wash, the van to unpack, lawn to mow, groceries to
pick up and a blog to paint...
Tomorrow I need to put up the tent and dry it all out.
