As a year, 2020 wasn’t all bad, to be sure. But there was plenty of stress and misery to go around. Before we turned the calendar to 2021, and with it the hope for better days to come, we had one final sunset on December 31, 2020. It occurred at 5:40. This painting is a nod to the various emotions I felt as the sun set on 2020, and looked forward to the sun rising on a new day, a new year, and what lies ahead. “Forty Past Five.” 36×36 oil on canvas.
