Artist Comments

The definition of a moonset is when the moon is full and dips just below the western horizon near dawn. Ever since man first looked up at the stars, he has been fascinated by the big sphere that hangs in the night sky above us and this particular artist is no exception. My favorite time to take a walk is in the late evening just before turning in for the night. I absolutely love looking up into the night sky and seeing the stars and the moon on a cloudless or almost cloudless night.

FYI…Did you know the common belief the moon has a dark side is a myth? The truth is both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight. The Moon rotates around on its own axis about once every 27 days. This is approximately the same amount of time it takes to orbit the Earth which means the same side is always facing the Earth. Astronomers call this phenomenon “synchronous rotation.” Only about 59% of the moon is ever visible to Earth over the course of an entire orbit. The rest of the 41% — the part many call “dark” — is the part we never ever get to see from Earth. The “far side” of the Moon has only been seen by the human eye from a spacecraft.

Some of the most gorgeous sunsets in the world happen right here in Texas, but of course I might be just a tad bit biased. I love the bright, colorful sunsets that I get to enjoy almost every evening. And I also love the idea of cowboys, horses and the Old West.

This painting reminds me of my childhood where pretty much all you could watch on TV were westerns. It was a fantasy life all us kids dreamed about living someday. We would pretend to be cowboys and rode imaginary horses for hours until mom called us in for supper.

When my husband decided it was time to retire from the Navy and settle down to live life as civilians, we bought some land and built a small ranch in East Texas with a couple of horses, a donkey and a few head of cattle. It was our dream to live the cowboy way of life. The cowboy in this painting is of no one in particular, just a cowboy.

Some Funny Quotes About the “Cowboy Way of Life”

• If you’re riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

• Always drink upstream from the herd.

• Don’t squat with your spurs on!

• Behind every successful rancher is a wife who works in town.

• Few cowboys ever owned much. The primary reward of being a cowboy is the pleasure of living a cowboy’s life.

This painting is part of the Life in Texas Series.

This painting is a religious themed landscape painting portraying the cross in silhouette against a colorful evening sky. It is not to be taken as the literal representation of the crucifixion of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rather it depicts that moment in time just after the disciples took His lifeless body down from the cross.

The Holy Bible tells us about this momentous historical event throughout its pages. From Scripture we learn that Jesus Christ endured the crucifixion from approximately 9 A.M until 3 P.M. and that His dead body was removed from the cross just before sundown. Whereas, the four New Testament Gospels describe some kind of supernatural phenomena which occurred at the moment of His death.

From the four Gospels we learn…

    • The Gospel of Matthew account mentions an earthquake,  the opening of the saints tombs in the vicinity and the resurrected saints making an appearance in Jerusalem.
    • The Gospel of Mark reveals how darkness spread throughout the land and the temple veil being ripped in two.
    • The Gospel of Luke tells us Jesus was crucified with criminals and that the Roman soldiers mocked Him and cast lots for His clothing.
    • The Gospel of John describes how the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and that Jesus was crucified at Golgotha which means the place of the Skull.

Calvary At Sunset is part of a series of oil paintings called the Christian Art Series.
