I initially sketched this out on Edisto Island. It was actually about midday when I was there but later in the evening I saw one of those incredible winter sunsets with the low lying clouds and a hint of red on the horizon. Working from memory in my studio allowed me to change the time of day so that I could create what I wanted. That is what it's all about.
This painting was also the cover of Carolina Arts magazine's February 2008 edition. Carolina Arts is published by my friends Tom & Linda Starland.
