SUNRISE - EASTERN SHORE FARM
I saw this farm while on the way to Bombay Hook wildlife nature reserve on the Eastern Shore some time ago. We had left home early in the morning and I remember watching the sun come up over the water as we crossed the Bay Bridge. Mist still lay in some hollows here and there and I marveled at the colors of the clouds. A peaceful mood prevailed as another day was born - one that I felt lucky to witness. As with a lot of my work, the painting was worked on for awhile then languished for some time in the corner of my studio, it was only lately that I finally finished it off. I tried to capture the mood of that particular morning so the colors were kept somewhat muted and details only suggested. Size of the work is 12" x 16". Oil on canvas.
