And here is my painting. I like it - a lot. Really, it’s one of my favorites of the paintings I’ve done - something about the colors is so pleasing to me. I didn't want people in my painting -so I left them out. The beach was so crowded, though, that it was impossible to take a photograph without people in it. I toned the panel with red before I started, and I like the way the red underneath comes through with all the colors. It provides an under-glow that gives the painting vibrancy.
Blue Mountain Beach Sunset (Florida)
Day’s end at the beach
Burning sun in orange and gold
Fire, sea, and clouds merge
