Before the clocks went forward this March, I was managing to get up just before dawn to run our dog. This meant that everyday I witnessed sunrise at the pink sand beach here. I love sunrises because it’s the first appearance of the sun and the colors are so different every time. Also, few people are up to enjoy it, so it feels even more special. Often, the few people that were on the beach at that time, would largely be standing facing the sun at that moment that it pops above the horizon. I’ve tried to capture that feeling in these two paintings. Who knows, maybe it will inspire me to set my alarm and go experience them again!
