Looking to the sky at the crack of dawn these are the colours I see
Inspired by that first glimpse of the sky as I look to the light breaking through each morning. Filled with curiosity as to what colours I will find. Very often here in Ireland, surrounded as we are with water, the sky is grey. Yet even the greys interest me as I look deeper into the hues and tones searching, searching for just the right colour description.
This looking has become a passion leading me to write morning koans which in turn have brought me to painting these abstracts I call 'Daybreak'. A koan, sometimes a riddle, other times a story or a meditation. Each painting has one.
Take some time to look, reflect and perhaps discover more than the sky.
I am working on a new collection of Daybreak paintings right now! Send me a note if you would like to hear when they are about to launch. July 2023
