"Morning Fire - Heavenly Day"
12x12 oil on linen panel
This is a piece I did last week and will be in my show opening one week from Friday (Friday November 4th, 6:30-8:30) at The Phipps in Hudson WI. I woke early this day, it was quiet as the kids were still sleeping, walked into the kitchen, looked out the window and saw THIS. Truly amazing the colors that exist in Nature. I stood there in wonder as I watched the fleeting effect, making mental notes of this moment as I knew it would only be a matter of minutes before the intensity of the color would fade. This was one of those moments that nothing else existed and the connection between me and the light I was absorbing was completely inspiring and moving. I see lots of sunsets and sunrises but this one and I had a connection which is why I painted it, and is why it came to me with great ease when I did paint it later on that week with the image vividly planted in my head.
