ACEO Desert Sunrise original watercolor by MyUnrulySun

My house faces a mountain range, and when I let the dogs out in the morning (before I crawl back into bed) I like to stay a minute and look at the sun peeking up over the mountains. I love how it looks like it's spilling "liquid sunshine" down the contours of the hills, like a river of light. This is my more colorful interpretation of that view.

This ACEO is pen and watercolor on matboard. This is an original, OOAK, not a print!

I co-run a non-profit called Feed the Beast (find us on Facebook!). We started out trying to foster cats, but we ended up keeping them rather than adopting them out, so now we sell products to raise money to donate to other area animal rescue groups and to fund emergency health care to stray animals. Example: my husband saw a dog who had been hit by a car sitting in the middle of the road. Everyone was driving around it instead of helping. So he picked up the dog and took him to the ER vet an hour and a half away and Feed the Beast was able to pick up the tab


  1. Lovely drawing - I'd love to wake up to mountains in he morning. Give your husband a hug from me for helping that injured dog. Thank you for doing so much to help animals!

  2. This painting looks so relaxing and peaceful.
