The wrap-around sunset

I teach middle school art in the small town where I grew up, where my parents moved after WWII to teach. I marched in the band on this field in the 70’s, now I take my turn working the ticket booth at football games. I still don’t really understand football, even though I read “football for dummies” when I briefly served as pep club sponsor, but I love looking at the sky, and how the field looks in that early evening light. I love how the white uniforms turn blue-violet in the shade. Our sunsets are so big they wrap around the sky. This view was looking due north! I painted this yesterday from a snapshot I took on my phone while working at a game.

  1. There’s nothing like a sunset to really show off a big sky!
