This was a commission from a homeowner who had sold her waterfront home and was going to miss her sunsets. Her sons commissioned this as a surprise; they gave me this photograph to work from. As it was dusk, some of the details were too dark to duplicate, so I went to the property to get some additional photos. After taking the photos, I sat down at the end of the dock to enjoy the sunset. And the swallows. Sooooo many swallows. So I added a few to the final piece. The center piece of this panel is seven layers of glass, amazing depth.
