“Sunset on the Open Sea” is the first of some smaller paintings I will be working on. This piece is painted on an 8 x 8 inch stretched canvas. This painting depicts a view looking out over a blue ocean as the sun sets on the horizon. I love painting sunsets, and this one is similar to another previous painting, “Sunset at Sea”, a slightly larger canvas. That painting is currently decorating the wall of my mother-in-law’s room in a residential care center. She loves looking at it and it brightens up her room.
