You know those times when you see something so completely and extraordinarily beautiful that you just 'yip' and stand their with your jaw open? Tonight after the rain clouds were dispersing over Pasadena, I caught a glimpse of what must be the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in my entire life. Photos can't even come close to doing it justice. I attempted to paint it on the spot with my laptop, failing miserably as the rain came back 3 minutes in. I stood there trying to absorb every detail about it, not sure if I could re paint it or not.
I tried, and again failed pretty terribly. but it helps me to cling to that memory, which I enjoy very much.
