Tampa Bay Sunset

I have been spending more time in Tampa, FL recently. I discovered a park near the Tampa airport which is quite close to where I stay. It has a small beach, sea oats, mangroves and a little marsh area. A little bit of paradise for an artist with just a short amount of time. I found this is a nice place to watch the sunset in the evenings. There are some birds that like to frequent this area also. Sometimes they are scared off by the airplanes that look like they are flying 100 feet off the ground as they land at the nearby international airport. Above; is a recently painted sunset which is 22 x 30 inches wide. I loved the purple colors contrasting with the orange lights. I've done a few sunset paintings and I liked this one most of all.
