Last Sunday, after a full day of painting, I retired to the back patio to have a glass of wine and enjoy a very nice sunset shaping up over the Seven Sisters. I clicked off a few photos with my phone.
As an artist, sometimes you have to look away from the action and see what's behind you. At one point, I instinctively turned around and snapped this shot, away from the sunset, and, to my eye, captured the best image of the night. That's my crow's nest, above my studio, at right, where I often climb up into for inspiration.
