When it comes to sunrises and oceans I will be the one giving it a go. The sun has a way to heat the soul and cause you to pause and ponder. This is one of my favorite paintings in a long time. Notice how the sun heated the sand even in the shadow. This sure would make a great 30 X 40 painting however this is a 7 X 9. Meet you at the surf this new year enjoy and be safe.
