A digital photograph of a mixed media color painting by John Thorns of a sunset on the western plains. Shadowed gray rocks sit in the foreground with patches of grass growing between them. Tall orange grass with a brown shrub on the right, and another in the middle, is behind the rocks. A long shadow on a hill looms behind the tall grass. On the right, at a distance, rises a tall hill. The clouds are a mixture of warm colors such as orange, pink, red, and purple. The sky is turning from a pale blue to a dark blue from top to bottom. The name Thorns is on the bottom right.
