Morning Fire - Heavenly Day

"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.

I like this one a lot, don't you wish that every morning you had one like this one, if that was so, I think every body will get up earlier. Good luck in your show.

I really enjoy your work and would love to take a workshop from you one of these days. I live in Central Wisconsin so we aren't too far away.
If you are ever in Stevens Point, stop in at the Q Gallery. We have an artist's cooperative there.

I love the honesty and outstanding painterly quality you achieve in all of your works... whether completed in the studio... or the field!

A wonderful body of work... and an interesting overlap with my own ideas and painting interests!

Good Painting!
