I love watching the glow that comes with dawn. It’s another in between – not day yet, but certainly not night. In Near Dawn I wanted to explore the mystery of the night sea contrasted with first light and the way that glow of warmth works its way down to the rolling waves. I also wanted to play with building textures and nuances into the water – unexpected bubbles to suggest that this place is very much alive, that there is much more you can’t see – might never see. And that’s ok, as long as you can acknowledge it. Enjoy.

    • Thank you Margaret. Often the subtleties in a painting are completely lost when seen on the web. The detail shots are one way to compensate.
