There isn’t a lot of light peaking through at sunrise, yet those little dabs of strategically placed bright colors give this painting a WOW factor! The dark colors in the foreground and in the tree make the lights pop and stand out, and those bits of lavender with those wonderful horizontal strokes are just stunning! Great composition keeps your eye in the painting… mine goes from the foreground, to the tree, to the top of the mast and down to the boat, then the water and back up the tree again. How about you? Look how much is left to your imagination… not easy to do! Love it!

Read a bit about Scott from his website:

I’ve always been driven to make things. No matter the medium, I find excitement and wonder in creating something that didn’t exist the day before. Whether that creation succeeds or fails, it drives my creative process forward – eager to begin the next piece.

Landscape painting is the perfect vehicle for my creative pursuits. It marries my love of nature with an immediate, responsive approach to painting. It can, at times, be a welcome solitary act – and at other times, an opportunity for camaraderie with fellow painters.

I’m a proud Oregon native and currently live in Portland with my wife and two young sons.
