I'm in love with sunsets. If there were such a thing as magic in the world, I'm convinced its best form could be at work during sunsets. Watching a sunset makes me 'wake up' in a way that very few other things do...even when in the presence of much natural beauty I feel 'extra' alive. It's like I'm getting a front-row seat on the spectacle of the universe when encompassed by a sunset. This particular sunset blazed across the quaint town-scape of Lexington around early November 2009. I've used artistic license to leave only a few of the dark silhouettes from the town against the sky's color. I have left much of the pastel application highly textured and unblended. I find the contrast between the softer, brushy clouds and the vigorous, textured streaks to be an exciting effect.
