I started this painting as I have all my others recently, with some lines and the idea of using a certain color palette. After the first application of watercolors, I suddenly saw this beautiful sun setting in the ocean. I tried to expand and enhance this initial image. What fun this one was to paint. It’s called Fire in The Sky.

Fire in the Sky - 12" X 16" Kilimanjaro paper and transparent watercolor

I was so excited as I painted it that I almost had to smack my hands to leave it alone as it dried between layers of paint.

  1. WOW! So much energy. Beautiful. All these fiery colors lately. You’re a fighter….but you know that. And I mean ‘fighter’ in every positive sense of the word.

    “Piece de Resistance” !!!!!!!

  5. Thank you Leslie. And I want to say again how much I admire the painting you just posted. Bravo. I was happy that this painting has a very clear center of interest. Sometimes that’s hard to achieve with abstracts (or maybe I just get involved with the process and forget the composition!)
