This small work was the first painting I completed after visiting New England last September. The idea came to me as I was entering a seafood restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island one evening. Across the street sat a very small cottage-like house, and the sun was setting behind it. When I returned home, I tried to recapture that image with this canvas.
"Rhode Island Sunset." Oil on canvas, 16 x 20 inches. Completed October 2013.
