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.
