Title (Dublin Core)

New Dawn, New Day

Description (Dublin Core)

Nina Simone’s iconic version of "Feeling Good" plays as I put the last touches on my final painting for the We Rise L.A. project.
Nina sings:
“It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good I'm feeling good”

My gouache (opaque watercolor) and ink artworks on paper, explore morning light, morning life, and the hope engendered by the dawn of a new day. Sourced from my memories of travel, these paintings reflect morning journeys, rituals, and routines.

This series was created in partnership with We Rise LA for Mental Health Awareness and 18th Street Arts. My 41 works of art were created as messages of hope, beauty, wellbeing, and self-compassion.

Nina sings:
“Oh, freedom is mine And I know how I feel It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life”
