And God Set a Bow in the Sky, 20x20 Oil on Canvas

A few weeks ago I posted the photo of this scene. I was so excited when the rainbow made an appearance, although it's risky to paint rainbows. They can look fake; sunrises are the same way. Some sunrises are so spectacular here that no one would find a painting of them believable. I tried to faithfully reproduce the rainbow in an understated way. The photo is below; you can see that I made a few changes in my painting.
