Sunset in the Smokies, Acrylic on canvas, 12 x 16 inches, 2019 by Helen Zhu

About the work:

In the Great Smoky Mountains, the clouds were dark and thick. We didn’t think we’d have much chance of seeing the sunset. Then, just as we were about to leave, a sphere of bright red pierced through the sky.
I tried to recreate this beautiful moment on canvas.
