"Sunset’s Silent Sigh"

10" x 16" - Oil on panel                     

Painting sunsets is one of my most enjoyable part of painting. Each one comes out so different. I often keep the subject simple and serene. A reflecting bird in flight and a couple of late day fishermen on the breakwater. To me, the painting is all about the sky and its impact of light and color on the water. I prefer the subjects almost in silhouette. It increases the contrast making the setting sun really stand out in a sky full of deep color. This view is taken from my childhood days of fishing until dusk on the Hyannis Port Breakwater. We had to find our way back to shore in the dark. But it was worth the show of colors while enjoying a fun filled pastime of fishing.
