One day last summer I was surfing with my girlfriends when the sun just blasted its yellow-orange rays on the water as it was rising. The result looked like we were floating on liquid gold! My friends found it very amusing that I was ignoring the waves and trying to memorize the color instead. This painting is a bit more representational since there is a backlit 'Pier' shape on the horizon line.
'Dawn Patrol.2' is a more abstract version of the water's surface bathed in gold and 'Dawn Patrol.3' is a translation in blues.
