Sunrise Trek 

Summer 2018

These are the color palettes derived from 30 consecutive sunrises in the Summer of 2018. I set out to create this piece as a further exploration of natural color combinations. For me, the process of developing a sustained practice was more important than the actual finished piece. It was a time of quiet personal self-reflection as I woke up every morning roughly at 5:30 am to capture these moments.

Color is all around us. It takes on so many different forms and moods. No sunrise, for the entire month that I did this project, looked the same. Each sunrise lasted for roughly 5 minutes apiece. This world is constantly changing. I believe that you just have to take the time to appreciate the small moments.
