This is a view from my house - perhaps the quintessential outhouse studio painting in that regard.  I saw a sunset through these unusual cypress trees, which have more treetops than trunks. The trees themselves are quite special and when the sunset poured through them, it was really incredible. About a week later I tried to recreate what I had seen and moved around the yard quite a bit so I could see the sun set as I remembered. I can look out the window behind me to see the fence, the trees and the fields - so this was not done exclusively by memory - probably why it is more detailed.
