Art Spotlight: Celebrating the Summer Sunset

Well, Summer has officially come to a close. As always we’re sad to see the season go, but this was a big year for summer sunset artwork so at least we can still revel in the sunsets it offered! 

As Mattie Stepanek said, “Sunset is my favorite color, the rainbow is second.”

The dramatic sights have certainly been reflected in the artwork submissions from our Painting with a Twist artists nationwide. Sunsets in summer are so fleeting and so gorgeous that they demand each one be the most beautiful thing in the world, that is, of course until the next one comes along.

Here are some of our favorite sunset paintings from the Painting with a Twist art library.

“L.A. Sunset”

Remarkable, right? We are California dreamin’ right when we lookover this painting. It is brought to you from Painting with a Twist – Mandeville, LA but was inspired by a beautiful photograph taken in Sun Valley, CA. If you’d like to paint this stunner, here’s where to find a studio near you

 

“Lovely Lake Sunset”

This one is so sweet, so sentimental, and so striking. The colors grab you and draw you in from the start. It was painted by an artist in Painting with a Twist – Fort Collins, CO. This is the perfect painting for a date night! Here are a few studios where this charming painting is available this week. 

 

“Detroit Wine Down”

Now here’s a sight we can all relate with. Stressed nerves unfrazzle just by seeing it. It’s the end of the day, shoes off, feet propped up, wine poured, and the only thing left is to let your stress drift away while you stare off into the sunset. This beauty was painted by Painting with a Twist – Ferndale, MI and inspired by a similar painting we have called “Montana Sunset.” Here’s a list of studios offering this painting this week.

 

“Mermaid Sunset”

The inspiration listed for this whimsical piece of art was, “Mermaids are the bomb!” and you know what? I couldn’t agree more. Granted, our undying wish as children was to be transformed into a mermaid, the adult-us will settle with this fabulous painting hailing from Painting with a Twist – Lafayette, IN. As one of our most popular paintings, there are a ton of studios offering this gorgeous painting in their studio. 

 

“Smoky Mountains in Fall”

You can almost feel the crisp air in this one. The night draws near, and then sun nestles against the blue mountain crests, breaking the sky into a song of bright colors and giving the autumn foliage a run for its money. Painting with a Twist – Sevierville, TN inspired this painting so that we may all be so lucky to take in a Smoky Mountain Sunset. Make this painting an addition to your fall home decor today! 

 

“Teal Skies over HB pier”

California at its finest we might say. This sunset is straight from a storybook with that Tiffany blue and flamingo pink. There are multiple paintings of this pier in our art library but this one seems the most whimsical. This magical painting came to us from Painting with a Twist – Huntington Beach, CA. Create your own tonight at one of these participating studios.
