Beach at Sunrise
My good friend, Karen (http://www.flickr.com/photos/artezoe) has permitted me to use her glorious photo of Amelia Island for this watercolor -- THANK YOU, Karen!
I painted this not only for the sunrise and morning, but for the calm it brings me ..I remember driving into Charleston, SC over the various bridges that link the peninsula to other regions of the County and watching the sun rise over the boats moored at the harbor. The 'hope' symbolized by that bright orb as it glistened over the water never failed to make me smile and face the day with a bit more optimism...And this photo, this painting, brought all those feelings right back.
I am SO missing the wee kitties. C tells me mom and babes are doing well ... but being a mom and a Nonna, I want to SEE for myself!! LOL The work week won't end fast enough, I'm afraid ...
