6x8 inch original oil painting
Two factors inspired the title of this piece: a sign at the side of the road, and the fact that a sunset must be captured quickly because of rapidly changing light.
At times like this I trust my instincts and react to the landscape without over-thinking it. There simply isn’t time to stop and analyze; I work very spontaneously and intuitively.
Sunset paintings don’t always succeed, but when they do the result is an emotion-packed piece with rich, juicy color and brushwork like this little jewel. This piece is going to add a spot of lively color to someone’s wall.

In a recent blog post I mentioned that if you’re an artist who hasn’t yet tried painting outdoors from nature, I strongly encourage you to give it a try. There’s nothing like plein air painting to make your work come alive.
