William Van Doren

Welcome to The Very Rich Hours, a series of paintings in response to each day’s sunset. I began these in June 1995, and the series includes every sunset since January 1, 2006.


Most of the sunsets were observed from the same place, facing the Blue Ridge, in an area known as Stony Point, north of Charlottesville, Virginia.


Currently the first pages to be updated with the most recent paintings are my Facebook Page@veryrichhours on Twitter; Instagram @williamvandoren.
