Although this isn't the best painting I've ever done, it does illustrate something that is very important in painting:  establishing a mood.  Mere reporting of fact doesn't get the blood flowing.  You need to say what it felt like to be in that location, how the light affected you, and if possible, even how it feels to be alive and seeing, not just looking.  Art can make that statement better than words sometimes.
