A flowing, luminescent painting capturing the final brilliant light of sunset. Warm yellow, orange and red billow up from a rich purple landscape. A pastel sky farther in the distance creates great depth in the scene. Many layers of transparent paint applied to achieve a radiating glow. "Rather than looking towards the sun, the piece focuses on a cloud catching the last warm rays of light," says Brian.

About The Artist

Brian Sostrom

Sagle, Idaho

Brian Sostrom’s paintings of water and sky are not your typical picturesque seascapes. They use moody dark blue hues combined with a soft atmospheric sense of light to create something mysterious and mesmerizing. Painting with acrylic on both sides of a Plexiglas panel, Brian uses this clear surface to achieve a pronounced sense of depth and a translucent quality in the scenes. The cropped, square-format compositions do not depict distinct places, but rather seek to elicit a personal emotional response. Looking into the ripples of waves disappearing into a soft horizon, or the obscure, agitated clouds, there is an impression of both emptiness and eternity. Brian was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and his paintings are clearly inspired by the natural beauty of the region.
