Ah, Italy, hill towns, Tuscany, and Spring! Fields full of red poppies, unbelievably vibrant. The curvy and steep roads leading into the town of Cortona. The old buildings, rugged stones from years ago. Just have to love this place!

We have just returned from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and please keep in mind, I am not used to seeing so much water around us! We are happily landlocked in northern Colorado but being near the H2O is quite refreshing and enjoyed our time there. I painted this painting on glass some time ago and thought I'd show it to you here, in honor of all the blues that we saw while on vacation! Best seen in person, of course, as are most paintings on glass.

Looming over the water, just coming into view, the last rays of the sun, the sun itself, dipping behind the water, moon on the rise. These are the breathless moments of a sunset.

Being a sunset fan, I have found that there are so many colors in the clouds and they change so quickly, sometimes one has to make choices in what to represent. Coral colors in the clouds seem to move through the skies fast, they're hard to catch with a camera for a reference photograph. So, what does an artist do? She uses her artistic license, of course! If you can, enlarge this painting, as you'll see many colors in it that could be missed at first glance.
