Day 41

We have promised for years to get up and greet the day on top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, this year we did it. In fact, we were 45 minutes early.

There were a lot of people milling around, taking pictures, chatting. Right before the sun rose, everyone found a comfortable position and it was quiet, just like church. There was this glorious sunrise, and behind us there was a full moon. As it became lighter, people slowly left, and everyone was smiling.

This pastel is the first sunrise I have done in years. I remember I used to be obsessed with doing very intense India ink studies of sunsets, with the typical mountains and boats in silhouette.

Absolutely gorgeous!! Acadia must be a great place to sketch and paint! I've only been once (sadly without a sketch pad or paints), but I'd love to go back.

P.S. - Thanks for the follow!
