Dawn's Palette

Pastel painting of sunrise in Wilmington, NC by Rose Ganucheau.

The atmosphere is always changing when you live at the edge of the earth, where the ocean meets the coast.  There is always heat or moisture clashing with cold or dry somewhere along the edge.  This incredible sky was photographed through the window as we did early morning field trip drop-off.  I went to work the minute I got home.  Digital photography has greatly effected my sunrise and sunset paintings.  What would have been lost can now be re-created.

Work:12 x 18,  Matted 

Price available on request.
