This trail was taken in November. It started out as a steep hike up to the top of a granite rock, sitting at 150 feet. The pond is a deep one in this area at about 50 feet deep.

The idea for this painting came as vision over the course of a few years. The intent was strong and I felt it had to be drawn out on canvas.

An interesting thing happened while in the midst of this painting. I got an email from a person inquiring if I had done their sunset painting because it, as well, was by a ‘L’Etoile’. The framed picture was a vibrant scene of an incredible sunset over an ocean. I wish I knew who it was. Funny how life is, if you’re thinking about a subject, this one being sunsets, the subject becomes an object and appears in all kinds of ways right in front of you.

When you sit on this pier in Great Island Common, New Castle, the sky seems to wrap around you. This night, after a rain storm, a grand stage of clouds hovered over and just as the sun went down, it’s light set the sky on fire.
