I've been reflecting on my recent group of sunset paintings. Evaluating their merits and meanings. I think they have a lot to do with living a busy life and craving that calm, quiet moment at the end of the day when your work is done. Taking a moment to relax, breathe and turn your thoughts to higher things is rejuventing and brings focus and clarity. How nice to have a painting on the wall that reminds you to stop, quiet your soul and find your center. That's just one of the wonderful, healing things art can do!

When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator. Indira Gandhi (1917 - 1984)

Jan: Very nice piece. Especially love the highlights in the foreground. They really help harmonize the high contrast painting.
