“gift of” vs. “gift from”

  • November 15, 2020, 1:29pm

I have written an essay about a painting, William Trost Richards’s A Rocky Coast. I sought the assistance of this website to verify the use of my preposition following the word “gift.” Here is my sentence: And don’t miss the almost imperceptible pink, all across the water’s surface, a gift of the setting sun.
I had to smile, because I now see the meaning to be more like a charitable contribution from the sun, rather than something simply given “from” the sun. So, thank you for all the interplay of responses, which have helped me with this sentence in prose.
