Nantasket Beach Sunset

8x8 oil on Gator Board with Black Wood Frame 

 Last week I was invited to paint and dine with a gracious friend who has a seaside condo with a sunset view. SO BEAUTIFUL. Pam is an interior designer so you know her home is 'done up'. We arrived in time to have some wine and munchies and chat but soon set up to catch (and I do mean catch) the sun setting. I was only able to get in a few color notes before the show was over but I had photos and have finished it from those. I will take another crack at this in a larger format now that I've gotten the composition and some color harmony worked out because I think I could loosen it up just a bit. To the left is the main boulevard with the lights of passing cars and street lights. Pam served us some fabulous food and we had a great night laughing and talking all things art.

Great one! You have a perfect harmony of colours there and I love you shades of green and blue. A very mysterious and dramatic painting....
