This sunset appeared on the last day of September, bringing in a glorious burst of autumn-hued color. The loose, expressive brush strokes give the scene a sense of motion and freshness, capturing the feeling of standing outdoors and watching the last rays of a sunset.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a custom-made, gold floater frame.
