I don't often just paint away without any idea of where the painting is going. This small acrylic painting was an exception. The result of this exercise in abstraction reminded me of landscapes of the southwest. The painting received a merit award at Arts by the Shore, sponsored by the Oak Island Art Guild (Oak Island, NC 2014).

Jed and Eileen are good friends and neighbors. They witness wonderful sunsets from their back porch which looks over a pond by a golf course. I developed this painting from a picture of one of their favorite sunsets. The picture showed only large, very dark and very light shapes. Details had to be created.
