Day After the Elections

Hope on the Horizon, 30 x 40

What did you do on Election Day? My good friend Lynn Cohagan and I got up early and painted the sunrise. I decided to just keep painting the sunrise, and the hope, all day - hence, the larger version. Whoever you voted for, it's a brand new day in this great country. New beginnings are always exciting... Arise and shine!

Laurel,
I share your excitement about this new hope!! Love that you expressed it with painting and love the results. I was up at 7 am walking doggies and the sky was truly stunning.

Hi Laurel,

I love your painting. I felt so nervous yesterday that I went for a long walk with my dog to try not to
listen to the constant chatter on our
radio stations.

At 10 we started watching the results,
and I feel like I haven't slept at all I was so excited. Wonderful painting, and great blog. The painting speaks volumes.

Take care,

Barbara
