"Sunrise At Work," by Michelle Robson of Michelle Robson Original Paintings.

Around here we are kind of known for our Iowa sunrise and sunsets, recent mornings and evenings no exception.

"Growing up in basically the middle of nowhere meant I spent a good amount of time outdoors. Therefore, I mostly painted what I knew – Iowa rural landscapes. I will always be a country girl at heart, but as I have grown and traveled more, I have expanded my painting subjects. All of my paintings are done from photographs, but I am not a plagiarist. The majority of the paintings I have done are places that I have personally traveled to. Iowa landscapes may be flat, but to me, they are still beautiful and I strive to portray that beauty in my artwork."
