Early Prayers, Alla Prima, Daily Painting

"Early Prayers"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas board

Got up extra early to beat the heat. I like to get up before everyone, and have time to myself to pray, paint something, or read. What a beautiful sunrise! I really did not do it justice. However, I do like the vines growing on the palms. I painted this one alla prima, from my back deck.

Early painting always reminds me of Psalm 63:1 ..."O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee..."

Watching the early morning sky unfold, with it's limitless palette of colors, reminds me that He is the Almighty Creator. And He loves me. Makes me smile. :o)

Plein air painting is like going on a long journey - you just have to take that first step. Then you're on your way! And what a wonderful trip it is!!
