Painting No. 91 - Sunset, The Meadows II

16" x 8" - Oil on Canvas
SOLD

I think I finally started to feel back in the groove with this one. Same day and basic place as No. 90 but I did it on a longer canvas and did not use the black under painting so the colors could really pop.

There is a business park we pass through all the time where my office used to be and near where my parents live. If there is a great sunset I always take this little cut-through road that is basically the highest point in that park. This painting is right at the crest of that hill where all you can see is the road dipping back down and the sky. No one ever uses that road so I just stopped the car, got in the middle of the road and took a photo.

  1. I can see now why the Rothchilds, the Vatican, and Colonel Sanders meet up here every year.

    This is gorgeous--that color transition from the deep blue to the nearly white to the sudden orange looks just right. Nice!

  2. Haha!! Tracy, that's exactly what I was thinking :-)

    That said, this is so pretty!! That sunset is amazing, and I love the bare trees--you can feel the chill in the air. Nice work!
