It's like there is this totalitarian reign on the sun making minds transition into thankfulness, awe, quietness, etcetera; each and every day. When does a sunset ever not bring a good thought into your mind? Even if it is on a bad day, or a day you don't want to see end, I have yet to think of one that made me quickly close the window, turn my head, shut my eyes, or wish it was something I had never seen.
I put together some of the things that when I drive, often have me pull over on the side of the road to either snap a picture, or just sit and look at. Trees, mountains, and sunsets. I know that list is longer, but I settled on those three things for this drawing. I wanted a contrast of warmth and stillness. The tree with no leaves, that still stands....says something. The sunset is an imaginary one made up of a rainbow of color, and I see the reflection off of the mountain being the summary of it all. The glow at the end of the day that warms everything around, inside out.
I have always wanted to get a sunset drawn out - so I'm glad to have done this.
