A Beautiful End Immortalized

Not a soul has been so moved by something that means an end in the way that the sunset has for ages. While it is constant and unchanging—in the sense that you can almost always expect the same seamless blend of oranges, blues, yellows, and pinksso is the impression that it leaves on people. A lone tear here, a sigh in utter relief and contentment there. Different expressions meaning the exact same thing: beautiful.

Truly, it’s no wonder that so many have tried to capture this beauty in whatever shape or form:

  • Photograph. The sunset is just too beautiful that you cannot leave it to chance—or faulty memory. Simple and straightforward. However, the kicker is in timing the shot perfectly.
  • Prose or poetry. Sometimes it’s not enough to simply take a picture of said beauty. The feelings it came with have to be taken note of as well.
  • Music. There are other times when in the presence of sheer beauty, one might hear a symphony of strings and bass.
  • Works of art. Now this is the ultimate meta: producing something beautiful by capturing something beautiful! More often than not, the beauty of the sunset is immortalized in Abstract Art Paintings. It doesn’t even matter what medium you use. Done well, the outcome is going to be beautiful.

Hope in the End

True, it is difficult to wrap your head around how something so beautiful can be used as a metaphor for something vaguely morbid (vaguely because “the end” could mean a lot of things). But I suppose that is something that sunsets do teach all of us: there is hope in the end.

It crucial to remember this grain of truth. However, I also get that it’s virtually impossible to think of when all is seemingly hopeless. So for those moments, these free-to-download sunset paintings may be just what the doctor ordered.

  • Pick-me-up. Whenever you feel like you’re in a bit of a slump, like nothing seems to be going your way somehow, a look at any of these oil or acrylic masterpieces can take your mind off it all and onto the vibrant patches of color.
  • Reminder. A mind headed down the deep pool of despair is nothing short of dangerous. To keep yourself afloat and to remind you of the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, look at these beautiful paintings.
  • A good ol’ adornment. Of course, if you’re simply looking to update your desktop wallpaper or to liven up your room, go ahead and download these free sunset paintings. Maybe even add in a few Bird Paintings too.

Revel in the beauty. There is hope.
