Day's End

16 x 20 Pastel on Colorfix Pastel Board

This was one of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen.  Capturing it was a challenge because nature gives us colors that are almost impossible to capture in mere paint.  Unfortunately, this image does not do the painting justice.  For some reason, the photo of the painting came out lighter than the actual painting.  The sky has many more colors and the water is not as light...but you can get the idea.  What I wanted to express in this painting was the stillness and peace one gets when observing the sky and water at dusk.  This might be one of my favorites!


  1. WOW, that painting is one of my favorites; one of my favorites too.
