Early Morning Sunlight

The other morning I pulled open the blinds and saw the sun hitting the trees across the cove.  Everything glowed.  It only lasted for about ten minutes, but what a display!  I know I say this a lot, but again this was a quick study.  I have definitely learned over the past year or so that I have to be totally committed to what I am painting or it doesn't work.  One of my favorite art books is by Kevin MacPherson.  He painted the same exact scene from his window each day for a full year.  It is amazing how beautiful each painting is, and how different his perspective was.  His book is an inspiration to me.
