This painting depicts the night sky after the sun has set, when only a faint glow remains in the horizon. The warm colors of the sunset have given way to cool, dark clouds that cover the sky. I wanted to convey a sense of coldness and vastness in this painting, as well as a hint of mystery and danger. The ocean is a black abyss that reflects the sky, creating a contrast between light and dark. I wanted the viewer to feel the awe and fear of the unknown that the ocean inspires.
