"End Of Day" by Carol Thompson

"As the sun sets over the vast ocean, you pause to take in the final glow of sky and clouds and bright reflections;  the shimmer of sunlight on the crest of the waves;  the silhouette of dark wet rocks.  A perfect scene at the 'end of the day'."

Artist comment:  "This is another in my "setting sun" seascape series. The setting is the Oregon coast at the wayside at Fogarty Creek, where I  love to watch the waves at the end of the day.   In my observations of the ocean at this time,  I noted (contrary to many artists'  interpretations), that, due to the curvature of the earth, the low angle of the sun does NOT send a flashing glimmer across the surface of the sea.  As this oil painting on stretched canvas depicts, the sea is already dark with the lengthening shadows, while the sky is still bright with the last light.  There is just enough sun to light up the translucent tips of the rolling water, and highlight the foam bursting off the crest of the waves.  The composition and brush strokes exemplify the "Z" shape that is so often found in my work."
