Sunset and Cypress and Highway One


Last week, headed north driving a friend home, we both suddenly realized that a spectacular was in progress over our ocean. I pulled off the empty highway and we watched the sun sink in one of the

Sunset and Cypress and Highway One

most glorious goodbyes I’d ever seen.

There were close to zero clouds, nothing to catch the brilliant color against wisps and puffs, an empty sky but for that stunning sun. I don’t ever remember seeing that before, no clouds, only the slightest line of fog near the highway. And blazing unobscured sun.

Returning home was equal to it, a night of stars and moon lighting up the ocean, catching white wave tips.

In less than an hour I was at the easel to record the black and green cypress clump just above the beach that framed the orange orb with Highway 1 rocketing in front of it all.

    • Many thanks, Shelley. I pulled over to the side of Highway One near Hurricane Point to drink it in, it literally jumped out of the sky at me. I started painting as soon as I got back, to remember it. It’s still in the Hawks Perch Gallery in Carmel Valley, come for a visit.
      Best to you.
