The Beginning and a Sunset

Sunset. Oil and polyurethane. Sold.

This was a painting based on an old Bible enclycopedias. I always looked through them when I was sick in a doctor's office. The illustrations struck me again years later when I was cleaning out my children's books. There was something simple about them, the colors so juicy. These images come to me whenever I hear anything about preservation of the earth. I would still like to do more of these, but I am full of ideas and sometimes they take years to complete. This is on canvas stretched on the back of a frame. After I painted in acryllic I poured the polyurethane to almost an inch thick.
