Golden Liquid Dawn ~ Johnstone River, Innisfail by Kerryn Madsen-Pietsch



Golden Liquid Dawn ~ Johnstone River, Innisfail by 

Early morning golden liquid sunrise over the Johnstone River.
Location: Looking east from the Innisfail Wharf, Far North Queensland, Australia.

I had worked all that night long in my art studio gallery on a large oil painting and I decided, before heading home for much needed rest and sleep, I would take advantage of the clear weather on this quiet early morning, to go take some photos of the old East Innisfail bridge for an historic record.

The subtle morning sunrise projecting golden shimmering liquid proved a breathtaking delight, an added bonus alongside the otherwise sleepy, misty, tranquil cloud-reflected Johnstone river!

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”
