Color as Inspiration

As an artist I am very much  inspired by colors around me.  Seasons, big blue skies, mountains with snow caps, ocean water, and the most vibrant of all....sunrises and sunsets.

Whenever the timing is right, I try to capture the sun as it peeks over the horizon.  The most amazing thing is that it is never the same. So many hues of brilliant yellow, orange and red.  Sometimes muted, other times intense, but always beautiful and inspiring.

Beautiful Rocky Mountains of Alberta

Would love to capture these colors in a painting

I am now inspired to go splash some paint - how about you?
