Had to share a sunset


I get asked a lot about the way I use color and textures.
I have the good fortune to live on a small lake.  It’s man-made, more or less.  It was wetlands, and then farmland full of berry bushes.   Left on it’s own, it was this huge puddle called Mud lake.  Nowadays, they use it for drain off and call it Fairview lake.  However,  it’s about 2 blocks away from the Columbia River, and as a result, we get these spectacular sunsets.
That wasn’t a digression.  When I was doing ATCs, I painted a lot of sunsets.  What better teacher can there be than the natural palette from earth, sky and water?
Sometimes I think I’m the most fortunate person in the world.
