Sunset Over Blue Jay Point

In this painting I tried to make the sky very distinguishable using a series of grids, colors and symbols. The water also uses grids and colors, but has a more distorted look to give the appearance of reflective shapes. I tried to use a limited palette of blues and greens for the majority of the painting in the hopes that this would create a strong focal point of the reds, oranges and yellows seen in the sunset.

This work combines varying elements of many of my recent works, and is one of many paintings that will be on display at the Page-Walker House in Cary, NC. This is an exciting show that opens on May 28th and will run through most of June.

Sunset Over Blue Jay Point - 20x16" Acrylic on Canvas


  1. Good luck with your Page-Walker show. Look forward to seeing many fine works of art. Tom

  2. The reflections in the water are phenomenal! It seems that the water is slightly moving with this "distorted look". Your works remind me of Alexander Arshansky . However, his is more complex and ornate but uses a similar repetition of shapes and patterns.
