Winter Sunset Reflections, Pastel

Winter Sunset Reflections, Pastel, 7″ x 17″, 2014. The framed original is available, and digital, giclee and canvas prints are available.


I painted this scene for my August exhibit “Sun Shadow Ice & Snow: Seasons of the Panhandle Trail” during Rock the Quarry, the annual fundraiser for the Panhandle Trail.

I decided to do this painting at pretty much the last minute, though I’d been visualizing it for years. The scene is one I’ve often seen along the trail on a winter evening. This painting was done from a photo I’d taken one of those winter evenings on the trail, a clear, cold day with a cloudless sky at sunset, the sky reflected on Robinson Run. The velvety darkness of the land contrasts so completely with the brilliance of the sky and its reflection on the water and, simple as it is, it’s always been one of my favorite images.

I used black Canson charcoal/pastel paper and only painted the areas of light and finally achieved what I’d been visualizing.


Shipping within the US is included.


The original is framed in a gloss black 8″ x 20″ frame with a 1.5″ cream black core mat. Because the shape and size of this painting is not standard prints and canvases are pretty expensive, so I don’t offer them. If you are interested, please ask.
