Sunrises have inspired artists for generations; their vibrant colorations cast a unique tone on each aspect of the landscape. "This pastel reflects my remembrance of a secret marsh with particularly deep, rich colors," says artist Donna Grande. The effects she achieves of smooth, glassy water and full, grassy reeds can only be achieved by expert layering of pastels on sanded archival paper.
