But Today, You See, Is A New Day – acrylic & ink on canvas – This work, a sunrise view out of my bedroom window here at The Horlock House, developed layer by layer over a longer stretch of time than I typically create pieces from start to finish. This extended time to sit with the picture gave my initial idea room to grow and maturate into what is posted here below. While the finished piece is essentially a carrying out of what first inspired me, I made some decisions in the process that I feel added more to it both visually and conceptually. The text around the border of the canvas is a collection of excerpts from my personal writings in several years worth of sketchbooks.
