Art Cards – Dawn and Dusk

This is the time of year when I remember to appreciate dawn and dusk, as our days get longer with more daylight. They are my most contemplative and relaxing times of the day.

One day this past week, I woke up early and peaked out the shades to see what the day looked like. I saw the most amazing sunrise, a sky full of pink, peach and orange. Dawn is one of my favorite times of day, when the world is still quiet and thinking about waking up, but not quite yet.

Dusk is another favorite time of day for me, when you can see the silhouettes of the trees with a darkening blue sky in the background and stars beginning to reveal themselves.

It seemed fitting to illustrate these cherished moments of peace with simple watercolor and pens for the silhouettes, along with reflective sayings to match my inspirations.

Check out the fun art  Michelle and Sandra have been adding to our Flickr group – so cool to see our variety of styles, inspirations and techniques.


  • Hello Terri,

    Love the theme of these cards. For some reason they remind me of Christmas cards. Hope you have a sun filled day.
    happy days.

  • The dusk card is beautiful! Both cards have great colors.

    I’m enjoying the longer days, too:)

  • Really, really like these Terri!! Love the colors and the vibes you get from them:)

  • Your cards are wonderful! The dawn is always my favorite time of day. So peaceful and full of promise..

    Enjoy your day!

  • Just lately I have been forgetting to appreciate these times of day, either in the rush to get out in the mornings or the tiredness following such busy days. Your cards are beautiful reminders to take a moment to appreciate these peaceful times of day when nature puts on some spectacular shows. Thank you.

  • Beautiful colors! I’m just getting ready to write a post on Jessica Jones’ new fabric line called Outside Oslo, and the two colorways are Dawn and Dusk!

  • Those are my favorite times of day too. When I was teaching in public school I seemed to miss both…too early in the classroom for one, stuck in the classroom or passed out for the other. My favorite place for a sunrise is the beach, (maybe I just love the beach) something about blue-y green water and sparkles just makes my whole heart happy 🙂

  • Dearest sweet terri, more art cards love!! Gorgeous…these are really pretty! Have alovely merry happy day and love to you!

  • Love your Art cards Terri, I can just see the pretty sunrise and your silhouette trees card is awesome.
