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 paintings are as seen from the same place, facing the Blue Ridge, north of Charlottesville, Virginia.


There was some disharmony recently between my browser and the server; the place to see any missing entries is via the Facebook page. “Like” The Very Rich Hours on Facebook and you’ll see each day’s sunset painting in your timeline.
