Oklahoma Sunset challenge--watercolor

"Oklahoma Sunset, watercolor, 5 by 7, 300 Lb. d'Arches
"Sunrise, sunset, swiftly fly the years...."
                        --Fiddler on the Roof, Sheldon Harnick, Jerry Bock
 One of the most moving, and saddest, songs I know of as a father is "Sunrise, Sunset," about daughters, and sons, growing older. It is haunting and always brings tears, tears mixed with joy.
I thought about that this morning after painting "Oklahoma Sunrise" yesterday, part of the WorldWatercolorMonth daily challenge
So again, the metaphorical aging shack at the end of another day, companion piece for yesterday. 
Sunrise, Sunset.
