This very large painting was commissioned by San Diego natives--a couple who grew up surfing and hanging out on the beach. They had seen many a green flash, and wanted an original painting for their living room that represented that flash they so love, but did not exactly look like a green flash (as a green flash occurs only at the second the sun sets, so you can't really get a beautiful sunset AND a green flash). So here I took artistic license, as I always do. The painting is a bit fauvist, the sky a bit Munchesque. The full-size original is stunning, if I do say so myself!
