Morning Has Broken
11 x 14 Oil on Linen
I have always loved early mornings out on the golf course just admiring the natural beauty and watching the day get started. Favorite place to do that is on the Seaside Golf Course at Sea Island. Many of you may recognize their signature flagstick which is a red wicker basket. This painting is one of my favorites and I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I had done a small study and worked from that along with teacher Jim Richards and learned so much.
This painting made me think of that Cat Stephens song. I think he said and sang it beautifully.
Morning has broken, like the first morning Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird Praise for the singing, praise for the morning Praise for the springing fresh from the word Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven Like the first dewfall, on the first grass Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden Sprung in completeness where his feet pass Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning Born of the one light, Eden saw play Praise with elation, praise every morning God's recreation of the new day
