“Beach Sunrise”

Beach Sunrise, oil on canvas, 36″x48″

Nothing like a beautiful sunrise to remind us what a gift each new day is. Finally finished this painting whose creation started at the beginning of the pandemic last year. Pretty interesting to look back at the all the stages of this painting from month to month–some of which seem very dark–perhaps a sign of the times. As the painting evolved and carried me into 2021, it finally took on the calm simplicity of an early morning on the beach that I had intended it too. This one will be heading to Island Art Gallery later this week!
