Sunset On The Chesapeake Bay

Pamela Hardy's avatar Pamela Hardy

Sunset On The Chesapeake Bay is a triptych. Each wood panel measures 15"H x 30" W; for a total width measurement of 90". I have tried to capture the vast panorama of the Eastern Shore of Virginia at sunset on a cold Christmas Eve. My husband and I had been visiting his mother that day. While driving home we were in the middle of a discussion about family. Suddenly I saw the scene begin to unfold. I knew I had to capture the scene and paint. The frigid wind blew steady off the bay as I waited to capture the exact moment when sun, bay, and horizon met.
