“You know– one loves the sunset, when one is so sad…”
“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”
But the little prince made no reply.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Music theme: Sunset – Avalanche City
Often I look to the sky and see more beauty than in any art ever made.
I took a photograph once of the beautiful sunset and it was an inspiration for this painting. This is rather small painting but it’s very dear to me, and I like it for its colours and contrasts.
I didn’t make much texture, only bold strikes of the brush, because the contrast and warm colours create life, even drama on this scene.
