Peaceful Sunset

Peaceful Sunset
5" x 7"  Oil
$100.00 + $10. s/h

For those of you who follow my blog, you've seen that I paint a lot of skies.  When you live in the west you have incredible, vast, open skies all around.  People who visit from back east can't believe how much sky you can see.  I've been places, in the south, east, and northwest where the trees are so tall and the greenery so thick and lush that you hardly know what the sky looks like!  That is certainly not the case here in Colorado!  Many of my paintings are of the sunrise view from our deck.  And many, like this one, are of the sunset view from our mountain property.  When I look at the views in front of me, I know that I'm blessed.

This afternoon I delivered my painting, Veterans Day, to the veteran who purchased it on Veterans Day!  It was so nice to meet her.  She's in the Reserves and here in Colorado Springs this week.  Tomorrow she'll head home to California.

Another lovely sky piece, Pam. You do have some hugely broad sky vistas where you are.

Debbi, thank you. Yes, and she was such a nice woman. Even has a daughter in San Francisco, just like us!

Thank you Hilda. What a great adjective.
