Lake Pend Oreille Sunset

February Sunset

Some of the most dramatic colors at sunset occur in the opposite direction of the descending sun. A wild punch of color illuminates the mountains to the east. I ran through the snow to film this and the color was intense and fading fast. Summer is gorgeous but that low winter light is magic.

Summer Magic – 6”x6”, acrylic

I painted this little commission for a woman in the San Juan Islands, a place I dearly love. She had fond memories of the big lakes of North Idaho. She wanted a little painting that captured her magical memories from the summers in the 70’s and 80’s.
