21. Breaking Day

12x12  oil on canvas board

This is another piece that I painted during the Chestertown Plein-Aire Festival. I actually got up and out very early one morning and drove to the Eastern Neck Natural Wildlife Refuge, which was about 45 minutes away. I wanted to get there as the sun rose - but I was a little late. I was set up by 7 am, and the sky still had this amazing peachy pink glow, underneath a bank of silvery clouds. It was worth the effort to be in such a beautiful place - but it was cold, 38 degrees, and there was as steady cold wind off of the water.....
