Artist: Mamie Bivin
Medium: Gouache paint and colored pencil on color-aid paper
"My paintings originate from direct observation, though they are often abstracted to some degree," says artist Mamie Bivin. "I created this painting in my backyard, looking at the vivid colors created by the last rays of the setting sun through the trees. I was inspired by the fleeting beauty of the moment, and the challenge of capturing the intense colors and contrast of the forest sunset."
