“Sunrise Before the Storm” is a mixed media piece (acrylic paint, paper – on canvas). It began its life during hurricane season several years ago and I’ve been struggling with it ever since. I went back and forth between celebrating a calm but colorful sunrise and warning of the dangers to come. Today I compromised. This version is a substantially edited photograph of the actual piece. In a few days I’ll make the unedited photograph available, too. They look remarkably different but complement each other.
