Winter Sunset

Winter Sunset • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

One of my favorite things about winter is the dramatic skies we get to witness.  I just love the warm light on frigid days.  Hope, calm and absolute beauty is what they represent to me on some of our shorts days of the year.  I try to get outside and walk to take in the fresh, sea air and the magic that Mother Nature offers up–even f it requires I wear snow pants and 2 coats.  Always a treat!

I love this sweet scene of the kitty in the window & the plants nearby.  Kitties always try to squeeze in-between things.  It looks as though this one managed not to knock anything down.  :-).  And this sky … what a magnificent glow!  Thanks for sharing your fantastic images.  🙂

Bug Light Sunset


Bug Light Sunset • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

 I went to a movie night at Bug Light with my sister-in-law & niece & nephew & this was the sky we got to enjoy before “Frozen” started.  Such a treat!  It was if the sky was dancing & singing boldly, “Let it go, let it go!”  🙂

Summer Sunset Over the Back Cove

Sunsets are magical at any time of year, but it’s especially nice to sit outside on a warm summer’s night & watch it go down.  I got to witness this sunset from Fort Sumner Park on North Street a little while back … the sky was incredible!
