I sent my son Graham out early one morning to capture some sunrise pictures. He came home with many, but my favorite was the one I used as reference for this painting. The day was just starting, the sun was coming around the corner of the river as the mist hugged the water and the shore. It felt fresh and cool, with an aura of mystery.
Original Oil painting 18" x 24"
