Every once and a while you get lucky and have a camera or paints available to capture that very brief, fleeting instance when the sun catches the edges of clouds and you’re treated to a beautiful light show.
Today’s painting is based on just such a moment. It was a cool summer night near Bailey Island, Maine, one of my favorite places to visit. We had just finished a delicious dinner of lobster and blueberry pie near a marina, when I stepped outside hoping to get some good photos of sailboats coming in for the evening. Instead I found that I had walked out just in time to capture that perfect moment when the setting sun sets the clouds all aglow.
