This painting was inspired by the euphoric feeling of watching a sunrise.
Witnessing the sun rising over the mountains has a primal and ancient feel to it. A feeling that brings us back to our roots and allows us to start the day refreshed and renewed. A chance to rethink our plans, goals and decisions and to look at things from a different perspective.
The sunrise brings with it the promise of a new day and a new beginning.
No matter what happened the day before, a new day equals a new start. We all feel refreshed after a good nights sleep. And when we rise in the morning, it’s almost as if everything that happened the day before is a faded and distant memory of years gone past. Today is the day we can make a difference. Today is the day we can choose to live our lives differently. Today we begin anew as the sun begins anew each day.
I wanted to portray the Goddess in this painting as Isis, the Egyptian winged-Goddess of the universe.
She is propping up the sun as it rises to its zenith in the sky. Her wings rise with the sun and reflect the same bright colors that hang on the skyline. Jewel tones such as red, pink and magenta and warm colors of yellow and orange adorn this sacred painting. The Goddess sits in a green field of brightly colored wildflowers with the mountains as her backdrop. My hope with this painting is to remind you that each new day is a chance for a new start. What we do today is what matters most.
