Marine Sunset—Earth’s Penumbra

For decades (three actually) I have been fascinated by that periwinkle blue band glowing on the horizon just after sunset. I have painted it over and over again, never knowing what it was or what it was called until recently. It is the earth’s shadow, the penumbra of the earth being cast into space. And above it, is the glowing, coral pink Belt of Venus.
