The Magic of Sunrise

For the perpetual calendar I decided that a folk art-like bag of apples or some generic "town" wouldn't do, so I decided on a painting of our house. Sometimes, especially in June, the house gets bathed in a brilliant yellow light early in the morning. I leave the house just early enough to catch this moment before it becomes too bright and it was important to me to capture this in oil. The beginning of every day is an opportunity to see the world in a new light and the poetry of this moment is fleeting.
