Summer Morning flowed easily from the start, the colors and quietness of the moment of the view before me bringing peace as I worked.
Each stroke and blend of the pastel colors was made with the hope of conveying the feeling of a morning at the beach, the soft colors of the morning sky, the dampness in the air, the anticipation of seeing what was on the other side of the dune, the sounds of gulls and gentle waves lapping just over the horizon.
I hope you feel it, too.
