England: Morning has broken ...

<< Another image from my Imaginary Trip to England class >>  
A path like this speaks 'welcome' to me. This scene also reminded me of some of the words of a familiar song:
Morning has broken, like the first morning  ....
Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden .....

Oh Claire, I love this one. It looks so like England. You did a fantastic job with this.

this looks like a road I would love to discover and explore on my bike, well done!

Jolene said...

Very nice claire, love the colors. If you put a little tinny dark at the end of the road it wont float. LOVE the misty feel of it, very good...

Kathy A. Johnson said...

Definitely a road I'd like to explore--well done, Claire!

I really love your perspective in this one.

The light in this painting is wonderful! Such a light glow... perfect for the title (which happens to be one of my favorite hymns)

Beautiful, Claire. You captured the peace and soft light of a moment in time.

This is so pretty. It isn't just welcoming me into the scene, it's beckoning me into the unknown up ahead... very nice!

I'm a walker, and this beautiful image is just calling out to me for a leisurely stroll, to just be in the moment.

Lovely, Claire, and the song you quoted is a favorite.

I am happy to hear that your son will be living in Copenhagen for a bit. You really must visit him while he is there. In addition to sturdy shoes, he will want to buy a bike. It can be simple and used -- the city is flat. Have him check out copenhagenize.com to get a feel for this very liveable city.
