This was painted from a picture I took back in October when we had a cookout on a lake island. It was literally the last warm night of 2013. We lucked out because a front rolled in right as the sun was setting. We had hoped to repeat the experience before the year was out, but the weather did not cooperate. This is the first time I've attempted a sunset, and after seeing the photo of the painting, I'm planning to go back and work on this some more. It was a good color challenge. I'll repost the update before these 30 days are up.
