The painting Break of Day, was a drawn from a momentary minute of inspiration. The sun was just cresting over the hill as I viewed it from the studio window. Not even having had my coffee yet, I was still rather in a mental fog, but I knew I had to record the essence of what I witnessed.
So, I grabbed a pencil and a scrap of paper and recorded the moment. I knew that if the sketch held true, then the painting would too.
