Billowing cumulus clouds catch the fading sunlight, turning brilliant hues of cotton candy pink, sherbet orange, and butter yellow. Every minute brings a change of light and color, as the sun sets below the horizon.

"Billows of Light" was created on 1-1/2' canvas, with the sides of the canvas painted as a continuation of the painting. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
