This large original is 12″ x 15″ (total framed dimensions 20″ x 23″). Due to the size and fragility of shipping large framed pieces, there is an additional $100 for shipping. If you are in the Minneapolis area and are interested in picking up the piece without additional shipping fees, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone needs a place of refuge – somewhere to go to escape the chaos of life. For me, there is something so peaceful about the setting sun and the turning of daytime into dusk. This transition is the most beautiful part of this day-and-night cycle. My favorite part of this piece is the warm glow of the clouds still holding on to the last bit of the sun as it fades away.
This artwork was made with individual pieces of embroidery floss that were glued to the background surface one by one and pushed into place with tiny scissors and a toothpick.
