There is such a comfort and peace in the predawn hours. If you are an early riser, you know what I mean. The silence, the twinkling of stars and the sound of just a few birds who are early risers too.

This painting Dawn's Early Light is a September 11 memory painting for me.

Growing up in the midwest, this would be a familiar predawn sight. Seeing a farm house in the distance with just a few lights glowing in the dark. On this day work had already begun to harvest the apple orchards.
Then, in a few hours, our world would be forever changed.
Remembering that day and wishing you peace.

The colors are so soft, that it has the feel of a soft pastel painting...... really nice.
