"Missouri River Dawn" Pastel 9" x 9"
Update: This piece has sold at the OA Gallery in Kirkwood Missouri! I'm so excited that it has found a new home!
As there is stillness and hush before dawn, the sky is slowly and softly lighting up, changing colors right before me. Then there it is that slow, brilliant, glow of the morning sun rising up over the crest! Dawn! There really isn't anything like it!
That was the inspiration for this painting. Of course I was taking photos again and again trying to record the continuous changing light and brilliant colors. Trying to capture that feeling of hope and inspiration as a new day is set forth. It really is almost impossible to do, I realize. But I am drawn to try.
