Daybreak Amelia

Photography by Marcia DeFalco.


Dimensions: image 30"x40" (framed 33"x44")


The Artist’s Eye Series: Marcia recently began to explore a technique in mixed media that combines photography and acrylics. She takes her own original photographs for the print medium on canvas and uses acrylic paint to show the viewer what the eye of the artist can see—but the eye of the camera cannot. The result is a unique work of art where it is nearly impossible to discern where the photograph ends, and the painting begins.

The result of her work in this series are large canvases that capture an expansive perspective and immerse the viewer in nature. It’s a chance to come face to face with natural beauty and wonder, and treasure the often ignored, or simply unseen reflection of nature in our own lives—reflections that refresh the body, the mind, and the soul.

Background story: My husband and I started walking the beach as soon as we moved to Amelia Island but had never gotten up early enough to take in a sunrise. As I familiarized myself with all the island had to offer, I noticed all these gorgeous sunrise and sunset pictures and paintings posted on Facebook pages and hung in art galleries across the island. So, one day I decided to get to the beach in time for sunrise and on that very first sunrise walk this glorious daybreak dawned.

Amelia Island: Sunrise and sunset on this island are beautiful. Each one is a unique moment-by-moment, ever-changing display of nature’s splendor.
