I can get so caught up in my commission work that I forget to carve out time to paint on a larger scale. I decided in January I would do more sizeable paintings and this is the first one (of hopefully many). I have a folder of favorite photos that I took for reference and this scene and moment was so special. It’s from an Autumn trip I took to Vinalhaven a few years back with my bicycle, paints and a backpack. I explored so much of the island over that 4 day stretch and one evening I decided to seek out sunset rock. I peddled towards the sunset and stumbled across the magical scene with this incredible light. Pinch me! Such joy to witness moments like this and then to get to make them live on. 🙂
