Sunset Over Inscription Rock 6x12 Oil/Cold Wax

This is a “memory” painting from a drive past El Morro National Monument (aka Inscription Rock) one winter evening.  Cold wax medium was used in the making of the painting, which lends it a beautiful, atmospheric translucency.

As a rule, sunsets are difficult subjects to paint.  But this one was so stunning that, while Trina drove, I spent a great deal of time watching and observing it.  I committed to  memory the salient details.
