One day each week during the winter months, I drive my wife to work at 6AM. That gives me the opportunity (and incentive) to watch the sun rise from one of many possible vantage points near the beach or along the banks of the Cape Fear River. This painting is the result of one of those opportunities. It is a view of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge as seen from the Wilmington Riverwalk near the old Cotton Exchange, before sunrise in February.
This is my father, TK Britt, burning the pond bank, painted from my 1989 pencil sketch. The pond was built by my father, grandfather, uncles, and others, and became a busy community gathering place for folks of all ages, on Sunday afternoons from around 1954 until about 1970. The bream fishing was very dependable.
This composition is based on a pencil sketch that I made during a dove hunt in 1989, but we saw fewer doves on the hunt than are depicted above. The original watercolor is adhered to a cradled panel and protected with wax medium, so no framing is necessary (See photo below).

This is at Federal Point, south of Fort Fisher, North Carolina. Look on the horizon for the sand dunes, which conceal the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The trees lean toward the land, as always, and on this day the grasses leaned toward the sea.
