"Sunset Flight"

"Another day is ending in a glow of gold on the sea and rocks.  Waves roll in and crash, sending spray into the evening air, while seagulls whirl in a 'sunset flight'."


ARTIST COMMENT 
One fine afternoon on the Oregon coast, I observed the seagulls as they flew over the waves at sunset.  The glow of the late day light caused them to appear as though they were covered with golden feathers.  In this oil on stretched canvas, I tried to recall that moment when the sky glowed, the waves seemed to be lit from behind, and the whirling gulls caught the last rays of the sun.  I painted the rocks with a palette knife, in darkest of brown, to balance the brightness of the sunset.  The blue-purple of the floating foam is a natural counterpoint to the yellow sky and reflected light.
