Hi! I am Dawn Petrill. I have a passion for discovering inspiration in life and translating it into art.  My work is colorful, textural, and full of spirit.  I also love to write and give creative insights through my weekly blog and monthly newsletters. Please take a look around and get to know my art and me.  If you like what you see let me know, so that I can get to know you and share my world of Art At Dawn.

 Painting revealed! Presented this to my good friend, Pam, for her surprise 50th bday yesterday. It is of Assumption Church in Oil City, PA where she grew up and got married that will soon be de-commissioned. There were tears in her eyes when she unwrapped it. So glad I could give my dear friend something meaningful! #acylicpainting #assumptionchurch #oilcitypa #birthdaysurprise
 Painting this afternoon- not exactly sure where I'm going with this piece. Perhaps I'm meant to work out the kinks now and start over? #painting #acrylic painting #workingoutthekinks
 Beauty in ordinary life. Sitting outside on my back patio contemplating shadows and reflections. Nowhere else I'd rather be right now. #beautifulworld #ordinarylife #shadows #reflections #nowhereelseidratherbe
 My kids spend a lot of time sitting around on their electronics if I let them! #sketch #sketchbook #sketchbookskool #kids #kidsontheirelectronics

“If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.”
