Lavender and Mill at Sunset, Provence

A week from today I'll be leaving for Provence with my workshop group, and have another chance to try to get something down on paper in those last intense moments of changing color before night comes.

So much for something Mel Stabin said - something about not bothering to paint sunsets because it was impossible to capture the beauty.
I think you definitely captured not the specificity of a particular sunset but the glorious feeling of "sunset."
Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful time in Provence!

Hi Susan. I love all your work, but this is especially beautiful. love that sky!

Susan Abbott said...

Thanks, Linda and Sue, for writing. I can understand Stabin's point of view--sunsets, gardens and babies all have to be approached with a critical painting eye, to avoid icing the already very sweet cake!

I appreciate your comment, Takeyce!
