This was painted from a photograph my daughter took on her iphone, during a walk in November 2010. This was the last walk we would be able to take together before she passed away. She photographed this section of coast during sunset with her iphone. I photographed the same sunset with a semi-pro DSLR and a great lens and I did only slightly better in dynamic range and detail in the sky and ocean. Her eye for composition overcame the limitations of the camera, and I used her photo as the base photo from the panting.

The process for the painting was a pastel sketch, then airbrushed primary color underpainting and then paint, lots of paint, in gestural layers.
