A WARM SUNRISE
Pink and Yellow Sunrise, 6 x 8 oil
It's 70 degrees out, and you're wearing shorts because you know it will be warmer soon. The sun is rising. If you dip your toes into the water it will feel cool at first, then warmer as you adjust. Later in the day, if it gets too hot, you can just plunge in.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
