Morning Has Broken


As is my norm, I was out walking in the morning, searching for inspiration. When the sun rose above the coastal mountains it just lit up the breakers. The first and last rays of the day are generally rich with warm light and inspiring to me both as a painter and someone who appreciates beauty. The directional lines of the waves repeated in the rocky shoal caught my sense of design offering a comfortable horizontal composition. The primary story is the sunlight hitting the breaking waves, but the foundation is the design, as it should be!
