Hi everyone, here’s my first painting of the new year — a sunset near Portland, Maine.

Sunsets hail from everywhere and share many of the same traits.  To get the local mood across it’s important, I’ve found, to get a few landscape details down so that, for example, Portland, Maine is distinguishable from Gnaw Bone, Indiana.   And, of course, similar though they may be each sunset has its own specific DNA — unique as a snowflake.
