Dawn and Dusk
Growing up in Lexington, Jinn and Jiji have witnessed countless Lexington sunrises and sunsets. They based their “Dawn and Dusk” painting on two images captured just a few steps away from their home in Lexington. One side of the door depicts “Dawn.” This side was painted by Jinn, who typically likes to wake up early and feel the first touch of light. Sunrise provides the power that starts the day. By layering the shrubs, grass, and trees, Jinn created depth in his painting. The mystery of hidden silhouettes intrigues people to venture into the wilderness.
Jiji depicts “Dusk” on the other side of the door. The vivid colors of sunset never cease to make her marvel in awe. She thoroughly enjoyed blending the vibrant blues, pinks, and oranges into her sky. Speaking of, Jinn and Jiji settled on using the professional grade paint from Golden Acrylic after seeking advice from two previous “Go Outdoors” artists, Emily Passman and Kathleen George. In the end, Jinn and Jiji simply hope that people will be inspired to go outdoors and savor the exquisite phenomenon of nature.
