Artist's Comments: For anyone who has enjoyed the sunset at Beach 69's; it is a magical moment as the beach is drenched in a blanket of golden glow; rocks glisten with each crashing wave and the shoreline driftwood hold onto the last glow of the setting sun. This piece was a turning point in my career as it represents my first large scale painting. I purchased larger brushes and enjoyed using my whole body to bring the painting alive. I discovered that by free-handing the clouds and sky without referencing my photo, I allowed my creativity to really develop. After selecting the primary colors for the sunset, I let loose and enjoyed imagining each cloud floating in the sky; creating another amazing sunset for us to enjoy.
