DAWN AND DUSK SERIES
Paintings of the dawn and the dusk has been an ongoing series for me almost since I began painting full time. In many of these works, I have been trying to capture the freshness of a new day. Most important is the sky and the associated cloud effects as light slowly grows in the East - usually the landscape plays a secondary role. Sitting in the pre-dawn stillness, I often have no idea what to expect and am always surprised, no two dawns it seems are the same. Evening skies are of course different and they, even more so than in the morning, can develop into something that I had no inclination of. I am often surprised and delighted, the process is one of discovery and wonderment as I try and capture what I have seen. Most works in this series are 9" x 12", oil on canvas.
