Under the Calm Morning Sun

When I first applied for this project, I knew I wanted to create a piece replicating the feeling of a morning walk under the winter sunrise. Around this time, I was in a stressful period with school, and I was surprised by the amount of impact a morning walk could have. It was so small, but it was able to pause the stress and allow me to appreciate the simple things like the blue sky, the fresh air, and the glitter effect from the sun hitting the fresh snow. Those little things calmed all the stresses and replaced them with appreciation… find the calm that lulls your tiger to rest.
