The Color of Sunrise

I spent my early life on the plains – Minnesota, South Dakota, and Nebraska – of North America. That means large spaces of flat-to-rolling terrain with nothing impeding the view of the sky for miles in every direction. Along with crystalline lakes and rivers. And, living in rural surrounds, that also meant watching the sun intersect the horizon, an event visible across vast distances. I spent a lot of time, there, living outside; day and night watching the sky, from early in the morning to late in the evening. So, the spontaneous beauty of sunrises and sunsets over water or open land is deeply ingrained.

All that abstractly and conceptually informs this painting.
