The start of any new painting is always full of potential. I know that there will be high points and low points before the painting is done. My excitement is akin to riding a roller coaster as the cars leave the station and begins to climb.
This particular painting is a beautiful winter sunset back home on the ranch in Alberta. Because of the time of the year (December 18), this is around 4:00 pm and the sun is setting almost at it’s furthest Southern point. Within a few days, the setting sun will start it’s long slow progression Northwards.
The dimensions of the canvas are a bit strange (twice as wide as it’s tall), but this should work for the painting I’m planning and it’s a size that can fit a surprising number of spaces. I’ll make to sure to post a picture of it hanging once I’m finished.
