Mhairi Lawson, the famous soprano???


Goooooooood Morning Provence!!

Damn. Makes me want to get up really early and see what things look like round here...
What time was it? 4.30-ish?
It's a real skill to be able to get so much light into a dark painting.

Thank you so much;
I thought it was a kind of quest for the holy grail, the never-ending kind, I mean; well, it happens, at last; and actually this painting reminds me of a walk I had, from Lyon to the the Cotes du rhone region (the southern part) on a quest for some nectar; and the sunrise we enjoyed was really like the one on the painting.
Merci beaucoup, and carry on the good work.

I envy you G. Lorgos...you are one very lucky person with a very beautiful painting!!


I like the landscape with the darker colors used on this one. It still has the appeal of the brighter ones but from a different perspective.

Beautiful. I can feel the cold morning dew.
Julian, technical question: what mixing medium do you use on these little gems? Thanks.

Alas, I have experienced just such a sunrise in Provence. Unfortunately, it was on the way to airport in Nice. I was crying all the way as I did not want to go home and wanted to paint one of these sunrises. Maybe someday.

Yes, I believe it was THE Mhairi Lawson! You never know who might pop up to comment on a ray of Shifting Light, especially when its one so out of the ordinary and beautiful as this.

tr�s beau , Julian,on sent vraiment la douceur du matin sur le Ventoux...

This one touched me more than all the others!!!
Beautiful. Tres Jolie!

is there any way i can purchase a print of " first light" I would be very happy.

thank you.
