Evening Enchantment, 6x6 Inch Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

$100 & $10 S&H

A thousand times I could view it, and a thousand times I could paint it, and I would never, ever tire of the pink glow at sunset in Hull, MA.  Looking west with the peninsula tapering out off to the right, then into Boston Harbor, I am simply enchanted by the pinky orange glow that reflects on the wet sand of Nantasket Beach.  Every time I paint it I commit it more to heart.  I can always use a spot of sunset colors wherever I am and whatever time of day it is.

Some say only God can make a great sunset.  Some say after that only a photograph is worth it.  But I think back on the lovely glows captured by artists through time: Monet, Van Gogh, Fitz Hugh Lane, Emile Gruppe, Kevin MacPherson, etc. etc. etc.  I like painting, so I guess I like painted sunsets.
