This petite oil painting captures the Oregon Cascades in abstracted shapes and vibrant brush strokes. The sunset colors are beautifully saturated hues of pink and sherbet. Each brush stroke captures the impression of a fleeting moment in time during the rapidly changing colors of the sky.

This oil painting was done on canvas-wrapped board.
