Morning On the Lake

"Morning On the Lake"
6" x 6"
Oil on hardboard 
The light was crisp that morning; not too many soft edges. on the clouds or the water. It was bound to be a fabulous day, no matter what. 

I used a heavier hand on this piece. Didn't blend my strokes as much as I normally do on sky paintings, and I like it. It's very painterly. Love the little bit of crisp water down in front, too.


Morning D'Light

"Morning D'Light"
12" x 12"
Oil on wrapped canvas
In the brightness of morning, I squinted as I photographed this luscious beauty. The intense light cast hard, colourful shadows on the nodding bloom, just opening her pouty mouth to the new day. Not until I imported my photos did I notice the morning dew on her lip and chin... er, petals.   

Morning light can suck the colour out of a white rose, but I was able to capture it effectively on this delightful bloom.  It was indeed a morning of delight.
