Canadian Sunset

"Canadian Sunset"
6" x 6"
Oil on hardboard
Where I live the sunrise and sunset are blocked by buildings and trees. My memory serves me in the area of these daily occurrences, and when I can, I photograph particularly stunning sunsets for reference.  This one is a recollection of one summer when I was in Canada at sunset. I loved how the primary colors reflected on the water, and how the trees, in the absence of light turned black.  I remember saying, "Good night Canada, I loved today." 

I painted this in twenty minutes.  I love these little sky studies.
