Misty morning light painting … finished!

Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all the earth.
Sing to the LORD, praise his name;
proclaim his salvation day after day.

PSALM 96: 1-2

On a chilly early spring morning I was sitting on the front porch having my coffee, when suddenly the sun broke through the trees, taking my breath away. Literally. 

After a few seconds I started breathing again, snapped a photo with my phone, finished my coffee and headed inside to the easel to try to capture the scene. Well, an impression of it anyway!
