As I painted this sunset, I contemplated all the nuances of my LORD's color-lit clouds traversing the heavens. I was inspired by the vastness and splendor of those beautiful clouds as I brushed purple, golden and peach colors onto the canvas. Then as I laid in the reflections of those skies in the lake it was just added bliss! I remember the evening when my son, Trey, took the reference photos for me. We were on our way home and saw this sunset over Lake Glenville (also known as Thorpe Reservoir) in NC. It was magnificent! But then, as I think about it, everything the LORD touches is magnificent! How awesome HE is and I'm so honored to paint them! My painting doesn't compare but I tried to at least convey the "taking my breath away feeling" onto the canvas. I look forward to all my LORD's sunsets because one day I'll see my last one and live forever with HIM. We no longer live there but I have many awesome memories of hikes, and cool evenings spent with my husband, Joe, by the fire on the screened in porch in Sapphire, NC. I am thankful for the opportunity to have lived there! Thank you LORD!
