I just took a group of eleven new 8x8" paintings to Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery and I was thrilled that the store manager wanted to keep all of them! She couldn't stop going on about this particular one so I decided it had to be the painting I posted first. I'm excited about how it turned out- it has the glow I wanted to achieve. The other challenge that I think worked out is the effect of light on the row of clouds at near-center: as they transition away from the setting sun, they change from glowing bright puffs to shadowed clouds rimmed with orange light. Happy.
