Sunrise Over Knoll Road

Sunrise Over Knoll Road by Michele Wells

I was painting in Carthage Missouri during their Maple Leaf Plein air event and I only had one morning to get a sunrise scene in before I had to enter my painting. I had arrived the evening before and was worried that I wouldn’t find the right place so I asked some of the local artist for a location. They sent me west of town. I found this view just as the distant sky was lightening as the sun came up. Perfect timing!
