Only 5:20 am when I peered out and saw the calm water of Liberty Bay. I pulled on a robe and climbed out onto the sun deck and painted the dawn. Coffee came later, around 7, when I was finished. Cold, but happy. Happy to be painting. Happy it's not raining. Happy to catch the dawn.
My set up: board with paper, foil dust tray, small Heilman box, table, paper towel. Still water. Quiet start of the day. A bald eagle flew right over the boat. I heard the wind in his feathers.
