Sunset Streaches Its Wings
Painting: Oil on canvas

20"h x 16"w


This painting is a composite of several photos as well as my imagination. After painting landscapes in plein air style for many years, I no longer paint outdoors because of my fading eyesight due to macular degeneration. But I am compelled to continue painting, although in my studio. There, I use photos and my imagination, and apply brushstrokes of vibrant color onto canvas or board surfaces. Painting is my meditation and a necessary part of my life.
