My husband is most often the one to make plans for the day around a sunset and enjoy it to its fullest.

“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!” ― C. JoyBell C.

"Sunrise Sunset" depicts two seated figures. The male figure on the left, is sitting with one arm resting on his knee and the other gently holding onto the knee of the other figure. He has short hair, wears glasses, and his facial expression carries a discontent mood. The female figure on the right is seated slightly in front of the male figure, leaning against him in a relaxed posture with a smile. Her hair is styled short, and she has a happy expression on her face. Both figures are dressed in casual clothing: the male in a button-up shirt and pants, and the female in a blouse and skirt. The sculpture is finely detailed, capturing the texture of the clothing and the nuances of the human form. The patina of the sculpture gives it a lifelike quality, with highlights and shadows that emphasize the contours and features of the figures. The base of the sculpture is a simple, dark, circular platform with a plaque that has the title "Sunrise Sunset" inscribed on it, suggesting a theme of time and memory.
