Watching and capturing a perfect Hawaiian Christmas Sunrise of 2013 was the inspiration for this mixed media piece. Using an original photograph by Carl Papenfuss as the focal point, depth and dimension were created by color choices and placement of the photograph. The background fabric is a recycled blouse and found items enhance the sun rays. The piece measures 20 x 20 inches and is hung using twist ties on a dried blackberry cane. This composition won a second place in the Mixed Media category at the 2014 juried Riverfest Art show in Clarksville, TN and was shown at the 2014 student show at Austin Peay State University in the Trahern Gallery.
