Vertical Sunset
5"x7"
Acrylic on fiberboard

My Dad, also an artist, saw a recent post of mine, I think it was monday's, and commented that if tipped on it's side, it looked like a lighthouse on the water. That comment inspired me to paint this one, and to name it Vertical Sunset. I don't know why, but I've been seeing all my paintings vertically lately. Sometimes, when I'm working a lot, or faced with a difficult piece, I paint in my dreams. Even in my dreams I've been seeing my work vertically.

On another note, I want to thank everyone for their comments here on my blog. You've all been so supportive and kind. The comments help me to get out of my head, they bust my butt, and inspire me to get in there to face the easel another day. Again, I thank you.

Great colours again. Love the format too. As for painting in your sleep, if only you could sell those as well ;-)

Good for you. You are staying abstract in the vertical while hinting at subjects that are horizontal.
