WHAT IS IT ABOUT SOME SUNSETS?  Some of the most beautiful sunsets seem to leave an impression that never fade.  I’m sure you remember at least one or two you wish you could have captured on film or painted.  Here’s one I wish I had seen myself.  But, like all good paintings–it takes me there in an instant and I can almost feel the heat of the day escaping.

 

One of Colorado Springs’ esteemed pastel artists, Marlene Kort, recently returned from a life-changing trip to Africa (more to come about that later). Although she has been home only a few weeks, she is wasting no time communicating what she saw and experienced through her gifted fingers at her easel. Marlene said the landscape was beautiful—surprisingly lush and green—and the sunsets were breathtaking.  Above is one of the first paintings inspired by her trip.  Can they get any better than this?
