12x36 oil and paper
24 carat gold leaf
1.5” gallery-wrapped canvas
Inspired by pink skies at sunset and sunrise on Amherst Island, this painting is meant to capture the feeling of magic as you witness the start and end of each day.
The gold leaf is meant to evoke the unpredictable magic of the horizon line, where the sky turns pink, where the sun appears and disappears. Where I imagine hope is waiting for us.
I named this piece for what is to me the most important song on the ‘Working on a Dream’ album. It’s a birthday song, a simple message of love and hope for the person you love. The painting is my most suggestive of a real landscape in this collection. It’s a sky struggling to light over a stormy sky. Hope carrying on despite the challenges life brings us. It’s a wish for a better year ahead.
This painting is equipped with hanging hardware so it is ready to hang in your home.
I have signed my initials on the front of this painting and have penned my initials, the date, and the painting’s name to the reverse side of the canvas.
