‘Dawn’ is the fourth painting of my series of small oil paintings in the collection I call ‘Women’. Dawn is the youngest of my two daughters. Little sister to Tara, the mother of Riley and Lillian Victoria. David and I wanted have two children so when it came time to expand our family my little Dawn entered the world. 8 lbs and 13 ounces of pure perfection. Dawn’s nature is gentle with just enough of what it takes to keep you on your toes. She’s as sweet as can be yet a spit fire of a girl all in one delightful package. This color palette was inspired by my beautiful Dawn’s warmth and loyalty in the warm buttery yellows of Vincent Van Gogh.
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
