I have found a special kind of lighting in the early morning that seems to be unique no other part of the day. There seems to be a separate kind of energy. These were sketched on a morning full of light and the beginning warmth of the day in a field full of poppies and wildflowers.

I digitally painted the image in Photoshop with a mix of my own technique and some of one of my favorite artists, Vincent Van Gogh. I used 4 layers for this image rather than more to keep the softness intact. I hope you enjoy the cheer and energy within this. :o)

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    A beautiful creation!!!!, it looks like stained glass. Bill

  • It does look a bit like stained glass. I didn’t notice that. It’s mainly because of the backlighting I think. Not always easy to paint either. :o) Thank you Bill.
