I love being in tropical places where I can get to see the sunrise over the water. Every morning when we were in Punta Cana I got up before sunrise, threw on some clothes and headed down to the beach in the dark to paint and take pictures. One morning it was still so dark that I had to stand by one of the lights to see my paints when I started painting. I would do a quick sky and then move on to taking photos of the sunrise. Then before I went back to the room to shower, I would take a long walk on the beach. My hubby and sister came with me the first morning, but they didn't join me the other days. Here are my paintings and a few photos of the sunrises there.
