Caetlynn says: "This painting is one in a series of works that, individually, represent a moment in time during a sunrise on the water's surface in the swamp. When shown collectively with other paintings in this series, they become a larger modular installation; a sequence of many stages in a sunrise. The shapes of the cypress stumps and trunk morph and wiggle as if distorted by heat waves, confusing and enhancing what can be read as either above or below the water's surface, and the flattening of space within the vertical framework of the picture plane heightens this abstraction. The oil paint is lush and viscous, with the brushwork speaking to the liquid nature of the subject. The design of each composition flips back and forth between paintings, so that two paintings next to each other may be a mirror image, or a twin, of the other."
