Unframed stretched canvas. Image of red sky with clouds, mountain peak to left, barracks to the right. Hisako Hibi noted in her writing her impressions of the beautiful sky at Topaz concentration camp. Both sunsets and sunrises inspired Hibi to paint. The focus of this painting is certainly the dramatic sky at sunrise. Hibi uses broad strokes of vibrant color to create an intense backdrop for her quiet camp scene. The barracks at the right remain in darkness below the fiery sky.
