Perhaps my favorite painting from my summer in North Myrtle Beach, SC, Sunset Carnival illustrates the life and energy given off by the carnival that lies at the heart of NMB’s nightlife. Surrounded by the beach, lofty resort buildings and the bustling activity of bars, shops, and mini-concerts on Main Street, this little carnival and its colorful lights made for an amazing sight at sunset. I was amazed to step back from this painting and watch the color and commotion bring the picture to life in a way I didn’t expect.
