Welcome to The Very Rich Hours, where you can find postings of each day’s sunset, which I’ve been painting since January 1, 2006. This journal is named for the 15th-century illuminated manuscript Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry


Most of these sunsets are from the same place, facing the Blue Ridge, north of Charlottesville, Virginia.
