"blues before sunrise"

"blues before sunrise"
30" x 48" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This painting is based on a photo I took crossing a bridge early one morning.  It was just beginning to get light and the fog and mist were rising from the river creating these great abstract shapes both near the water and above the trees. Don't you love those fleeting moments where the atmosphere and the scene in front of you changes as you watch?  I love the peacefulness of this painting and the serene blue palette.  A little different than what I usually paint but that's the fun part of it, right?  This painting will be in the exhibition at Sozo Gallery that starts May 8th...just a couple of days away!
