I was enjoying the subtle sunset light at Eastville Beach while trying to decide where to go to paint. Well… why go anywhere else! As it was cold and windy, I started work in my van. Still getting use to the time change, I sort of hoped that a ferry might pass into my scene. I was not sure what boat or from which direction it might appear. This is the “Nantucket”, built in 1974.

It is always a bit sad to see the lifeguard stand empty, no one on the beach and fishermen working the shore and jetty. Fall seems to come too quickly with its riotous color palette and warm afternoons. But soon enough the colors will turn to grays and the air will chill…

"Harbor Sunset"

“Harbor Sunset”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

This is the first sunset with clouds which we have had in a while. I happened to be close enough to this large open sky to actually start the painting after the sun had set. It was a challenge to grab the correct colors while moving extra fast, but my past vocabulary of paint, although feeling shaky, held true…
