Setting Sun

Chiura Obata (1885–1975) painted the Setting Sun which is of the Sacramento Valley, California, in 1925. It is a Hanging scroll made with mineral pigments (distemper) and gold on silk. I found this painting through Google on some website about Asian-American modern art and thought that it was really cool. The sky looks like it is on fire but still has that tropical blue sunset sky behind it. It reminds me of sunsets in Ibiza, where went this past summer.
