Purple Sunsets

All three of these pieces are inspired by sunsets in the mountains. From an over look or a mountain top the distant silhouettes of the neighboring mountains begin to blend in with the horizon.  As the sun sets, the green mountains begin to loose their color and morph into a whole new mountain range. These are not any particular sunset that I've seen but rather these mosaics express how I remember and reinvent a purple sunset in my memory. 


(Above is an image of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York ... I took it from the top of Blue Lake Mountain just as the sun was setting ... we actually had to run down the mountain, to race with the setting sun ... )

This purple scene, where the mountains and the sky are almost one, is right before the hour it becomes too dark to distinguish the horizon like from the defining line of the mountain range.
