9x9 soft pastel
I'm on hiatus in Cascade, Idaho. Sometimes with a new pup...you just have to get away for awhile to paint. That was the case with this painting. First Light is an inspirational little scene I found at dawn this morning just as the sun was coming up, touching the shoreline of our little pond. I absolutely love the pathways through the trees and meandering ponds in this area and feel very blessed to have some quiet time alone to reflect, eat, and paint. I took a lot of photo references today and nearly froze my fingers off but the excursion at dawn was well worth it. I hope you like it.
