My daughter and I were watching my grandson play at the water’s edge on the beach just below our home one Fourth of July. I looked up at the sky and was awed by this moment. Nature puts on the most dramatic light shows, no fireworks needed. See my blog post for more details about how this painting was created, and my painting process in general.
