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.
