This is another one that was part of my solo exhibit at IU Methodist Hospital, in the art gallery located in the lobby of the hospital. I was so thrilled to be asked to participate in this project. I can’t think of a better use for a hospital lobby than an art gallery. This painting is now in my dining room and it warms me up every day.
After a few months of being tired, ill and unmotivated, I’ve been working on some big paintings lately and this one was inspired by a smaller one I did a couple of years ago that’s still one of my personal favorites. I really like the 36 x 36 size and it’s hanging over my sofa in my newly painted den/kitchen/great room until it goes to my upcoming exhibit. What do you think?
This is from a photo I took of the sun coming up from behind a stand of sea oats in Pensacola Florida. I found myself waking up every morning just as the sun was starting to peek out from the horizon. I have a series of paintings of the sunrise from Pensacola beach that I will be working on during the cold winter ahead.
