Driving Home (5"x7" oil on canvas board)

Drving home one afternoon from work (Queensland 2008) I stopped at a set of traffic lights and noticed the gorgeous sunset lighting up the horizon, as if on fire. And yet the storm clouds still lingered. It was getting darker, and cars had their headlights on. I took a quick photo on my phone out the window! Fortunately the lights are red for aaaaggggesss at this intersection.


  1. Beautiful. I'm always drawn to this view of the day. You captured it perfectly.

  2. That's one of the biggest reasons why I love living in the desert; no trees blocking gorgeous sunsets like this one you have beautifully painted. Your color contrasts are stunning.

  3. Love this Sally. I love the sky, but also the little additions of modern life - the streetlight, telephone poles & wires. Great piece.

  4. Dear Sally,
    All your work is charming!! Particularly, I love this work! Awesome!!! You have to teach me oil. I gave up oil long time ago and went back to watercolor. When you come back to Australia, I hope we can get together.
    Cheers, Sadami

  5. Thank you everyone, I have loved the submissions so far!

    Sadami thank you for your visit, I will be returning to the Gold Coast, is that anywhere near you?
