Manasota Key Golden Sunset - Oil on Canvas- 12' x 16"

This impressionist rendering of a dramatic sunset at Manasota Key, Florida, shows the gold and orange sky, with liquid gold poured out over the sea!

The beach cottage lies nestled under the trees in silhouette, as the last rays of sunlight lick at the windows leaving a warm glo.

The beach is in cool shadow.  This is surprisingly painted with strong blue, purple and pink colors which contrast perfectly with the yellow sky, but are still lively enough to connect with it!

This is a bold painting where strong colors are used in harmony.  A generous frame would enhance and contain the composition to the delight of any viewer!
