Abstract art in purple and gold

Sunrise Mass

12" x 12"
watercolor by Jamie Hansen
Soundtrack: "Gloria" from Sunrise Mass by Ola Gjeilo

I painted this watercolor to Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass. This piece evokes Sunrise (Gloria) through the rich and shimmery gold leaf accents on nebulous purple washes.

My Soundscapes are partly born from the spaces I had painted around the musicians from my portraits project. What would I see if I looked in the spaces around them, where their music and their confidence surrounded them like a veil? Their sound and their energy would hang in the air like haze of color around them. The emotion from their music would be like a vapor that colored the space.
