Red sun retreating
Holds night in fiery embrace
Before darkness falls.
Traveling along a back road I watched the sun go down in a glorious red blaze, and thought: if I paint this, no-one will ever believe it could be real. But I painted it anyway.
(Some time after I first painted it I was playing with interference paints, and decided to incorporate them into this painting. They helped bring out that last fiery gleam of light over the landscape.)
