There's a certain section of road that I drive by on almost a daily basis. Because of my routine, I typically end up passing by at the end of the day, when the sun is just beginning to think about setting. With the pines silhouetted against it, the light creates a wall of negative shapes; this collection of windows that stream past my car. The effect reminds me of a church's giant stained-glass windows. It's really just a few seconds, glancing by and then gone until the next drive, but the image has stuck in my mind enough that it led to this painting.
