Another Great Sunrise

Another Great Sunrise
5" x 7" oil on board
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I'm back to sunrises and very early mornings.  I couldn't believe this!  In a state that has 320 sunny days each year, my planned early morning was overcast and cloudy.   And while that didn't allow for incredible warm colors, it created a great sunrise none the less.

This Thursday evening I'm participating in the 3rd Thursday Art Walk in Monument, Colorado, about 30 minutes north of here.  I'll be displaying my work in Bella Casa.  Hope those of you who live nearby can make it!
