Day 23: Sunset

This sunset post has stumped me for days. DAYS. I have the next few days done, but could not get my sunset one right.

I want to go out west and have a guided tour over Georgia O'Keeffe's ranch. I want the tour to end on a rock near a cactus. I want the sunset to begin while I wear a tank top and paint furiously to capture the colors. I want the sunset to end with a thick cable knit sweater around my shoulders and 6 or 7 drafts of the sun going down.
Then I will have the perfect picture for this post.

Until then, here's a watercolor I started years ago and I'd like to finish this week:
