Glorious dawn

The canvas was too large for an easel, I had to lean it against a large rock. What a moment when the sun came up!


Glorious dawn by Alison C. Dibble is an original fine art painting, one of a kind. The sun is just starting to come up in this painting. It is oil on canvas, 36 x 48 inches. It has already found a home. Thank you.

It was spring, we were having a spell of mild weather. I got up at 3:30 a.m. and drove a short distance to Blueberry Hill, which is a favorite overlook of the Atlantic Ocean in the Schoodic Peninsula unit of Acadia National Park in Maine. I set up my huge canvas in the pre-dawn light. The canvas was too large to put on an easel so I rested it on a drop cloth and leaned it on some rocks. Then I quickly mixed some colors on my palette as the sun’s first rays appeared at the horizon.

The sun came up, a fiery orb, and far too bright to gaze upon without risking eye injury. But I could put that brightness in the painting, could suggest that this new day will be full of hope and possibility.
