Sunsets

Moon at Dusk, 5x7"--SOLD
I was making some progress cleaning my studio when suddenly came down with a cold that made me useless for two days. On day three, I was feeling a little bit better and celebrated it by doing some painting.

The first one is based on a photo I took from the highway. Since the foreground in the photo was a blurry mass, I decided to make one up.

Utica Sunset, 8x10"
The second one was a serendipity painting--I looked at some reference photos I had in a file and this one, which at the time I though I would never paint, jumped at me. I'm not sure this is the final version. I'm toying with the idea of adding some red lights from a car going towards the area of interest.

Thank you all so much for your comments. I went to Old Forge recently an was able to find the exact spot where I took the photo for the second painting. This time I took shots of cars going towards the horizon. I'll definitely incorporate one in the painting. Thanks again!
