"After Sunset"

The idea for this painting came to me after taking an evening walk some time ago. I know that the sun sets every day, but what I saw that evening was really amazing. The sun was giving a goodbye spectacle, or rather a goodbye hug, because everything within it's reach seemed to be wrapped around by it with such intensity that it almost felt like a last burst of emotions before it's disappearing. 

I remember going back home when the night was inevitably spreading it's wings over the world. The sun was long gone but it's light still echoed across the land, as if repeating: "Remember, after every sunset there is a sunrise ...". 


"After Sunset", 30x40 cm, oil on board

See you next time! Have a great week :)

    1. Well, it's always nice to experiment a bit with colours and to use them as a form of expression. I really like the result in this one :)

  3. I have experienced that sunset on occasion and the sky is aflutter with blue, pink and red. I can feel the sunset you created from your memory. Lovely, just lovely.
