The morning golden hour when the sun rakes across the marsh, lighting the trees just across the creek. Edisto Island was just starting to wake up from winter.

The greens were just popping out in the grasses when I took the photo reference here. So the dominant color in the marsh was the full range of lavender and violet overlaid with gold.

That time of day can be so silent that the only sound is the plop of a fish jumping. The perfect time to meditate with a cup of coffee in hand.

Join me on my daily painting journey and get sneak peeks (~ 3x/ week) and special VIP previews of the new collections when they're released!
