Dreaming of Quiet Sunrises

A quick exercise to finish the day last night in a hope for those quiet sunrises of summer. I've tried to stay loose and simple, wet into wet, and yet with enough detail and atmosphere to prompt dreams of quiet summery days ...

There are some chores to get behind me before the holiday weekend can 'begin' .... and the temps are expected to reach the high 90sF so we'll have to keep an eye on the garden and be certain those ripening vegetables receive the moisture and cooling down they need to mature.

The sun has not quite risen as I write; dew dribbles down the skylights and already the kitties have scratched at the door for breakfast. It amazes me how keen their hearing - they seem to appear the moment the coffee pot perks!

Have a great day!

Oh this is so colorful and joyous -- the colors are just jumping off the page yet the whole painting lends a real feeling of serenity and peace. Terrific job!

Big hugs,
