Fire in the Sky

from 445.00

A blazing sky in this beautiful rendering of a picturesque Hawaiian scene. I wanted to capture the emotion of such an experience without an overabundance of distracting detail.

Although often seen and thought of as a sunset painting this was actually inpsired one early morning as I watched the sunrise through the trees over the ocean. My goal in this painting was to try to get away from too much detail and instead focus on trying to capture the experience of witnessing the sun on the horizon in Hawaii. I focused on the glow of the sun, its effects on the sky, and the perfect silhouette the landscape creates.

This painting may be ordered as an 18” x 30” unframed giclée reproduction on museum quality archival paper, on unframed archival canvas, or from a numbered edition mounted as a 1.5” deep gallery wrap. The sides of the gallery wrap are not mirrored, black, or white, but rather the painting has been extended specifically for the sides with additional content which is not important to the main composition. This process allows the character of a gallery wrap to be expressed without the issues which may arise from a mirrored wrap such as odd shapes or patterns.

All numbered editions are numbered and signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity from Michael Simpson and Sylentstudios.
