Why We Love Sunsets


Time to read 1 min

The sunset. Its intangible power can bring millions of people, around the globe, from all cultures, to a standstill. Why? It reminds all of us just how beautiful life really is, when we choose to take time to enjoy it. What can a sunset do for you?

  • Relieve your stress
  • Clear your mind
  • Improve your mood
  • Inspire you
  • Provide perspective
  • Remind you of the beauty of our home, the Earth
  • Give wings to your imagination

We all want to experience those moments. We all want an injection of joy in our life, a boost to our sense of well-being. Here are a few sunsets, just for you, from our Master of Sunsets, Stephen Day.

“Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sunset paintings from Jim Bagley capture the beauty and simplicity of overlooked terrains and out of the way places with works that a spontaneous, “plein air” feel. Rendered masterfully in oil with color and form that emphasizes the dramatic relationship between the West’s open sky and the land, Jim travels to places most others would drive around or fly over or otherwise ignore. His intention is to reveal the beauty and magnificence of the undervalued or undiscovered landscape and allow the collector to share in the experience.

"No sun outlasts its sunset but will rise again and bring the dawn."

Maya Angelou
