Sierra Sunrise is an oil painting by Sheryl Knight Fine Art. It is the view looking west as the mountains near Bishop, CA in the Eastern Sierras turn a bright reddish orange early in the morning as the sunrises. This color on the Sierras only lasts about 15 minutes before it changes. This is a studio painting from some photos I took in October when the cottonwood trees were turning color for the fall, along with the grasses. Most of the trees and field are in shadow as the light hits the top of the mountains.
