"Such beauty fills the sky! These sunsets are magical to me." - Barbara Simpson

Spectacular Sunsets

Sunsets, whether from our view at home (which is pretty amazing in itself) or enjoyed on vacation, sunsets are so breathtaking to see at the end of any day.  On this page catch a glimpse of sunsets in breathtaking regions I have the pleasure of living and or otherwise have visited. I love going to the beach - one of my favourite places - being on the water period. A sunset at these locations is always incredible, so vivid and alive in its own way! As with water - lakes, oceans, rivers, Mother Nature herself - I too have a spiritual connection with sunsets. Each moment in time documented in art history. Sunsets are one of my favourite subjects - to watch in life and to paint - please visit again as there will be more of these amazing moments recorded in my painting diary. Available for collection, each painting is original, unique, one-of-a-kind . There are no prints. See a painting you absolutely would like to have for your own? Contact me today!

Backstory: One of my favourite places to visit in Canada to date is the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.

This particular visit was together with a friend who lived on the Island who showed me some very spectacular places, including here at Kye Bay.  Seeing the new moon together with the pleasing pink throughout the night sky while enjoying an enlightening time of conversation about life and the area, this painting came to life as noted in my painting diary.

After the Rain (Brockville), 16"x20", acrylic/gloss varnish on gallery-wrapped canvas, unframed, edges painted, ready to hang. Available. $600-  Contact Artist

Backstory: I was living in Brockville Ontario at the time. Visiting with family. A horrendous thunderstorm pounced the tiny town. The thunder and lightening was amazing!!! Then, after the storm finished, we went outside to view the most incredibly vibrant sunset. You've heard of the calm before the storm? Well, this was definitely the beauty after the storm. Once again, I was inspired the God's beautiful canvas in the sky and this painting came to exist. Painting is available for collection. Contact Artist
