A brand new year…

Woke up to find my sister Edel had posted this photograph on our family WhatsApp group to welcome the New Year. She had captured the first sunrise from the shore of Carlingford Lough, in our hometown of Warrenpoint.

Living round the corner from such beauty really does the heart good. ❤️ However, I missed the dawn as I was still asleep, having stayed up well into the wee small hours watching coverage of the 2019 Glastonbury festival. Perhaps my New Year’s resolution should be to stop looking back. Oh, and to do a lot more painting—so this landscape could be the first of 2021!

New Year’s Day
a gull soars towards
the light

  2. What a beautiful image that draws you into the light!

    • Thanks for visiting, Linda. Yes, sister has been walking very early in the mornings the last few years and caught this wonderful shot. I’m hoping to paint it one of these days.

      I was visiting your blog earlier and found it very interesting. I must go back and read everything. I’m working on a painting these last few days which may or may not be going to exhibition tomorrow—depending on whether or not I get it finished!
