"The day ends in a red glow that quickly fades to purple on the beach at Cannon Beach, Oregon. Famous Haystack Rock looms dark and mysterious and the lighthouse on Tillamook Rock disappears into the evening mist as you enjoy a lingering 'beach walk at sunset'."
Artist comment: "This painting was the result of a memorable day on the coast of Oregon, ending at Cannon Beach. My family had spent the day beachcombing, flying kites, picnicing, and generally having a grand time. As the time to leave the beach drew ever nearer, the scene became ever more beautiful, holding all four of us spell-bound by the glory of the setting sun. So, we sat on the sand at the southern end of the shore, and gazed at the purples, reds and golds, until the last rays of light left the sky. Later in my studio, I recreated the memory of the day in this small watercolor on 140# Arches hot-pressed watercolor paper.
