This morning while I was out walking bandit I noticed how beautiful the sunrise was over Tablerock. So I went inside, grabbed my headlamp and a little canvas and sketched out this dark little scene. Then went inside and painted it. It took about an hour, and it looks like it. I’ll put some more time into it to see where it can go. The color in the sky looks better in the painting than the photo of the painting. The dark paint was hard to photograph.
This painting bothers my daughter because I originally painted in my neighbors house, then I painted it out. She liked it with the house. This is what it would look like if there were no houses in my neighborhood. We’d have a lovely unobscured view of Tablerock.
