A Sunrise of Your Own

As my readers know, The Sunrise Project is my current obsession. Since early February, I've been rising before dawn to paint the sky as the sun rises. The current sunrise count is 55.   

People ask me as they observe the paintings piling up around my studio, "So, Jaime, what are you going to do with all these paintings?" 

My answer: "When I get enough of them, I'd like to display them all together. I'll need a massive amount - 365 is a good number to shoot for, one for every day of the year."

Then two friends of mine had birthdays this week. What could I give them?

           Their very own sunrise, painted on the morning of their birthday!

Cheryl's Sunrise, June 1



 
It was so much fun to paint for a purpose other than just piling up paintings for some future date.


Tatyana's Sunrise, June 2

After a quick framing job on a still-wet painting, I presented Tatyana's Sunrise to her yesterday at her celebration dinner. I must say, she was delighted to have her very own sunrise, a remembrance of how her special day began. Who wouldn't be?

Every day is a special day for someone somewhere. It's someone's birthday, anniversary, wedding day, graduation day, or the day-of-their-first-something.

I'd love to paint the sunrise for your special day. Or how about a gift for someone you love?

Who do you know with an upcoming milestone just crying out to be commemorated? Wouldn't they be delighted with a painting of their very own sunrise on that special day? 

Let me know and I'll be happy to make arrangements to be on the beach at the crack of dawn to capture the very beginning of that special day.

When you think of that special person, email me - we can make it happen! (For a very reasonable price.)

P.S.
I won't see Cheryl until next week, so mum's the word, don't tell her what her present is!

    1. Who indeed? Practicing painting the sky each day makes it a little easier. After a year, I might know how to paint a sky.

  2. Hi Jaime - what a colorful and heart-felt way to celebrate a birthday - I'll bet your friends' smiles are as radiant as the sun when they received your amazing painting. I'm especially fond of Cheryl's sunrise (purple person that I am!) Cheers from Port Townsend!

    1. Thank you, Frances. Yes, they do love their very own sunrises.

      I'm a purple person, too, but Tatyana remarked that her sunrise seemed made just for her; she knew that God had given expression to her personality by coloring the sky just that way on the day of her birth. Cool, huh?

    1. Hi Kristina,
      Yes, this project is one I continue to be excited about - a reason to get up (really early!) every morning.
      My friends get a sunrise and so other people who commission me to paint on their special day.
      I'm having lots of fun with this one!
      Best to you,
      Jaime
