New Dawn, New Day (And FREE Art)


Gregg Chadwick
New Dawn - Greenwich Village
9"x6"gouache and ink on paper 2021

Nina Simone’s iconic version of Feeling Good plays as I put the last touches on my final painting for the We Rise L.A. project.

Nina sings:

“It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life

For me

And I'm feeling good I'm feeling good”

My gouache (opaque watercolor) and ink artworks on paper, explore morning light, morning life, and the hope engendered by the dawn of a new day. Sourced from my memories of travel, these paintings reflect morning journeys, rituals, and routines.

In partnership with We Rise LA for Mental Health Awareness, I have created 41 works of art as messages of hope, beauty, wellbeing, and self-compassion.

Nina sings:

“Oh, freedom is mine And I know how I feel It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life”

Happy Earth Day 2021! Greta Van Fleet - Tears of Rain (Audio)

đŸ”„Tears of RainđŸ”„ [Verse 1] Bathing in the light around us Praying for the night to comfort thee Dancing on a cove below us Praying for the flood to set us free [Chorus] And the planet is still turning And the faces are still burning And the mothers with their children search for the rain [Verse 2] Drifting through the plains before us As it turns to dust before our eyes Pleading for a god to pour us Just a little bit of rain from an empty sky [Chorus] And the planet is still turning And the faces are still burning And the mothers with their children search for the rain [Outro] Who will bring the rain, woah Who will bring the rain, hey Who will bring the rain, no no no Who will bring the rain, woah Who will bring it Who will bring the rain
