First sunrise over marshland
First sunrise over marshland painting: As the first rays of sunlight broke over the expanse of the marshland, I was struck by the contrast of the warm yellow sunrays against the cool shades of sky blue as dusk turned to dawn. A house hides among the forest that emerges from the marsh as the light is emerging from just beyond the trees. The opening light of the day left room for shadows on stretches of the marshland while it illuminated the breadth of grass that edged along the inlet. Painted with the reflection of the morning sky, the inlet brings to the painting a vitality and energy that comes with the possibilities of a new day.
