Matsumoto, Japan....A mountain town in the Japanese alps. One evening we were on our way walking into town for dinner and the sky unfolded this amazing sunset with cumulus clouds billowing with color! Of course I had to try to capture this memory. We were walking down this alley in the neighborhood in which we were staying ...looking up at the roof tops, tree tops and wires, it almost felt like our alley back in Santa Monica and it slightly made me homesick. Actually it made me miss our two dogs because it reminded me of our nightly walks. This painting is watercolor and gouache and is 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
