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!
