"Songbird has Spoken"

OIl on canvas panel, 8"x8"

This is a creek near Lost Maples State Park as the sun rises above the hills and casts oblique lighting across the landscape. Painted from a photo taken on a trip with brother Tom in July of 2007. The inspiration of the title came from lyrics of an old Cat Stevens song, "Morning has Broken" which may have been a more appropriate name, however, I like the way the phrase "Songbird has Spoken" indicates that it isn't sunrise but shortly thereafter.
