"California Sunset #1"

 
 "California Sunset"
4x4" oil on fiberboard

My wonderful son sent me a photo from San Diego not too long ago of this beautiful sunset.  It came across to me with a brown tone, but I looked really carefully and found other colors.  I think I may do this again in different colors, but today I felt these.  More important than the sunset itself I love this because for a brief moment I could feel how my son must have felt standing by the ocean seeing this...and for a second I almost felt like I was standing next to him.  The fact that he sent me this means a lot...he thinks of me as an artist, and knew I would find the beauty in it like he must have the night he took it!  As you know I love my kids like crazy...and I'm so proud of them.  Today I am missing my son extra...I wanted to connect, so this was my way!  I love you my son!

Here's hoping you all can be touched by something today and will feel compelled to paint it!  Happy Creating!

Such a different subject for you. It's beautiful. It's so funny you mentioned your son sent you this. My son, who lives in LA sends me pics all the time which I often use as the basis of a painting. Isn't it wonderful having loving children.

Yes Jean...It is WONDERFUL!! Yes, I know, it isn't trees and mountains...but part of my heart does reside near the ocean...:)

I wish I had more connection with my own kids but they just don't seem to need or want it as I do. Makes me sad, really. Still, Saundra...This is an exquisite piece. You can feel the joy of your love for your son in it and that makes it even more amazing. Wonderful work!

Saundra...This painting gives me the feeling of a happy soul just bursting with joyous color!!! Very spiritual.
You and your children are very Chosen to have one another.
