I KNOW you're a sunset lover. Have you ever been to Arizona? They're one of our secret treasures (well,
not so secret, I guess).
.
.

The pinks and lavenders and oranges and purples that are the mainstays of much Southwestern art can
be seen almost NIGHTLY in our sunsets. Truly breathtaking and, dare I say it, "common".

Thank you!

I just was able to see that odd cloud formation from where I was standing, and then I moved to see it much more clearly!

I have been to Arizona, but not in a very long time...

Alas, I was not exposed to your wonderful sunsets...maybe someday! I would rather say "normal" than "common"! But I hear you!

Though I had raced to the beach to see many an Atlantic ocean sunrise, I've never
seen a Pacific Ocean sunset. When I was in Palos Verdes Estates (the above-mentioned
house), it clouded up hours before I flew in and didn't clear up until hours after I left
three days later!!!!!!)

When I asked MFMS if her house was ON the beach, she told me it was in the hills --
"about $2,000,000 off the beach".

It is significantly higher than here, and the clouds are often present there.

The view of Catalina from your sister's house cannot be beat!

I can easily see why you love her work.

I just dabble, and now and then the skies cooperate!

Thanks for coming by and for the link.



At first, I thought this was a photo......but I looked at your link, and I see these are paintings. Very well done!

I had to share! We haven't had any pretty sunsets in a while...

And I know you've already had some Winter weather there...snow and all...

Glad I could help with that!

Oh, lucky you, to have such a view!

Sunsets are certainly one of planet earth's perks.

I love sunsets! There's the beauty, but there's a poignancy there as well that has it's own beauty, if that makes sense.

I noticed that here in Iowa, winter sunsets have seemed to be more colorful lately; I don't know why, it just surprises me. Maybe it's just this year, cause it's been very warm this winter.

Thanks again, sunsets are nature's way of making up for a lot of stresses elsewhere IMO.

You're very welcome!

I really don't know what makes sunsets colorful some times, and not others...except here, we get the colors when the smog blows out over the ocean.

They sure do relieve stress!
