Sunset on the Beach

Today's painting was inspired by late summer evenings on the Pacific Coast. As the sun sets, the wet sand takes on a sparkle of the glowing sky. Sea birds pick their way along the shore and all is well. I just wish that's where we were. The winter weather is getting old and I'm ready for a vacation. The painting is 5x7 inches on a canvas panel and has been SOLD. Check out my gallery for additional paintings currently for sale.

Nancy: I love the simplicity of the composition and use of a limited palette. Really strong image that any beach-goer will recall.
