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.

William Van Doren, YOU CAN HEAR THE WHISTLE BLOW A HUNDRED MILES. Sunset from Stony Point, Albemarle County, Va. Oil on canvas, 24 x 30.I was about to paint the sunset when I started thinking about the beautiful twilight I’d seen quite a bit later. At the same time, “500 Miles” by The Journeymen started playing. The title comes from that song.
