Rainbow Art Journal – Sunrise and Sunset

This page is the transition between the orange section of my art journal (which is finally completed after a year – woohoo!) and the yellow section.  Those colours combined with the idea of transitions made me think of the cycle of sunrise and sunset and gave me the inspiration for this illustration.  It also left me with the earworm of “Sunrise, Sunset” from ‘Fiddler on the Roof’.  Sidebar: when I lived in Edinburgh in the 1990s, I saw a production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ at the Playhouse starring Topol.  It remains one of the best productions I have ever seen, especially the set design.  So, yes, while that song played on repeat in my head, I created this art journal page.  I plagiarized my own artwork for the concept and composition as this is a version of my “Alpha & Omega” page from last January.

  1. That song was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw your title. I loved that film – how amazing actually to have seen Topol. I was surprised at first that he was still acting in the 90s so looked him up – he was obviously much younger than he looked when the film was made (born 1935 so probably a much more suitable age for Tevye in the 90s than he was in 1971). The wormholes a blog post sends you down!
