Morning on the River, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 5"x7"
Enjoying the dawn with a good cup of coffee in hand is a simple morning pleasure. The sky delights with soft bands of pastel color changing from hour to hour and different from day to day. Dawn is counted as the time the sky begins to lighten until actual sunrise, which takes place the moment the sun peeks above the eastern horizon.
The time of today's painting has the sun firmly in control of the sky, but the softness of a new day is still evident, and the merry little breezes won't tease the water until later in the day.
