Sunset in the Garden

During the summer, sunset can be a magical time of day. The shadows grow longer and the air begins to cool. Some of the animal life begins to settle in for the evening, while others are just beginning to stir. Watching the sun set behind the distant mountains can be calming and meditative as the colors change from bright blues with brilliant reds and oranges, to more subtle tones of purple, pink, and gray. 

These beautiful summer evenings are the inspiration for the piece featured in this blog post. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into how Sunset in the Garden was created.
