It's gonna be a sunset in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I live in Virginia, but I'll be using a photo from a friend of mine in North Carolina who posted it on Facebook. The mountains in this painting look just like the Blue Ridge Mountains. I wish I could post the photo on here, but unfortunately, I can't. 😥
