Sunrise at Playa

My husband and I traveled to Playa del Carmen with my family while I was pregnant with our first son. It was a wonderful pre-children vacation, full of time on the beach reading books and just being still. The view from our balcony faced east and so we saw the sun rise over the ocean each morning.

This painting captures one of those beautiful sunrises--just about the perfect way to begin a day and to calm one's own waters. This was fun to paint and I enjoyed the looseness; it was all done with brush, thickly to provide some texture. The colors are soft, and just seem to glow with warmth.
