BLACKWATER SUNDOWN

Once again, sorry for the lack of posts lately, we have just got back from Spain traveling around the Andalucian region. Quite a trip! Starting from Madrid, we went on to visit many of the most important cities and towns of Southern Spain and saw many monuments, castles, churches etc. One of the many highlights was an early morning visit to the Alhambra and many pleasant hours were spent walking around there. I even managed to do some sketching and painting along the way so I'm sure that many of the places and people that I saw will become paintings in the not-too-distant future.
Far away from sunny Spain is one of my favorite places on the Eastern Shore of the US - namely Blackwater wildlife reserve. In the above painting, the sun has set across one of the many bodies of water there creating interesting cloud patterns in the sky. This one was completed for a client who wanted an evening sky painting and I am delighted to say that she was very happy with it. This oil on canvas is 27" X 40". SOLD.
