Sunrises & Sunsets

As night skies and oceans evoke limitlessness, sunrises and sunsets express the finite. Each day starts and ends with one, marking time and our personal accomplishments. Nature comes up with some pretty incredible displays, but I have never heard a person say they didn’t find a showy sunrise or sunset to be moving and worthy of pausing for a moment. It’s always best to get out and see a real sunset (or sunrise if you like to get up early) with your own eyes, but if that’s challenging for your lifestyle, bringing the rich colors of a sunrise or a sunset into your home or office in the form of art is the next best thing.
