Watching the Sun Rise With You

Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas

I painted this piece after I shared an experience of seeing the same beautiful sunrise, from different places, with my dear friend Andrea. Unbeknownst to each of us, we thought of one another as we watched the dawn break and then laughed in amazement as we learned of our unintentionally shared experience. An abstract landscape, with this painting, I used a dragging technique and thinned acrylic paint as a watermedia to create an ethereal quality. The colors bleed into one another revealing different intensities depending on light and perspective. Naturally, this painting now resides in Andrea’s lovely dining room, a housewarming gift to my beloved friend.
