The piece is based more off of a series of colors and emotions I had in my head rather than any specific story or meaning. If there was one feeling I felt I could capture with this piece, it was the feeling of loving something so that you’d never want it to leave. When it came time to title the piece, the idea manifested itself to me as a sunset. One that I could hope would last forever.
