Living in the mountains, we are gifted daily with new, dramatic panoramas. The way the light breaks through the peaks and the colour of the sky change with the seasons. In spring and autumn, the air is thick and carries the light in sheets. An autumn sunset--as this painting depicts--is crisp and dramatic, with beautiful contrast of gold, orange and teal-tinged blues, spectacular despite the waning hours of daylight.
