This painting is based on a camping trip in Yosemite National Park. I remember my husband and I woke early in the cold morning before dawn in order to get to Tunnel View where we could photograph the sunrise. While it is a beautiful memory, I recall staring at my phone the entire time.
How do you balance being present in the moment and taking pictures?
