That Sunset from the Train

A horribly stormy day gave way to this magnificent sunset.

I’ve long had this desire to paint the skyline as viewed from the F train as it travels outside across the Gowanus in Brooklyn. It is a two-station segment of the NYC subway system that is the highest point of the transit system and the views are quite wonderful any time of day. Last week the sky opened up to a breathtaking sunset just as we were emerging from the tunnel. Me, my fellow passengers, especially the kids, went ballistic with the show—it was that grand. For five minutes we all went wow and snapped photos with our Phones. By the time I emerged at my station, only a few stops away, the display was over.
