Last Kiss of Light
Not For Sale
This was a truly inspired painting for me. I had went swimming in the ocean near Neck Point Park close to sunset time, mid-August. I was on my bike and could see some nice colours forming in the sky, so I went back home to get my good camera, and rode back down to another beach in the park, aptly named, "Sunset Beach." There I was amazed (yet again!) by the ever changing gorgeous colours of the sunset. I remember thinking that all the various blues on the water made it look "icy" cold, but it was just how the last light was catching the top of the waves, while the periphery was already in shadow. The pollution from the wildfire smoke intensified the colours as well. Two days later I set aside other paintings to start on this one and it came together just as I anticipated. This will definitely part of a series.

Every day I experience something in nature that invokes a response: a need to create and express an instance in time. I love the challenge of creating texture, reflection, and light. I'm grateful to live where this is evident in abundance each day.
