Transitory Moment

Last February after finishing an afternoon painting and on my way to meet friends for dinner, I had some time to spare. So I pulled over and painted one more time before the day was done. I set up in a parking lot and grabbed this moment. A stranger came over and watched me create this painting. He was from Germany and had much to say about the transitory nature of sunsets. It was an interesting and slightly magical hour.

Transitory Sunset, 8 x 8 inches, is now available at Corktree Cellars, Carpinteria. If you go, I can highly recommend the New England Lobster Melt. Crazy good.
