This landscape reminds me of our family trip out West a few years ago. The cool thing is this unique formation is much closer to home. A silhouette of limestone quarry against the setting sun. Being an active quarry the landscape is still changing every day.
Best. Dad. Ever. We live in the woods on a glacial ridge. Not the most conducive for a pool. My dear husband scouted out the best possible spot in the yard. He came home from Rural King with a big box of the best joy and 8 year boy could dream of for summer vacation. Did I mention he did this on Father's Day weekend?
We had a storm roll through last night that knocked out the power all day. No better place to spend a hot, soupy day.
I was out watering my garden in the peace of early morning. Bees were buzzing in the hostas that are in full bloom by my he garden shed. I am so glad I had my cell phone. I snapped a ton of pics in hope to get at least on clear one of the bees in flight. I was so excited for my inspiration for the studio later in the day. I would like to colored this subject further.
I must be watching too many episodes of the X-Files on Netflix with my daughter. Because this painting looks like it is somewhere out West near Roswell or even another world. Dusk is becoming one of my favorite times to paint. You can find that I have posted quite a few in the last month or so. Have a great weekend!
Enjoying the lovely summer weather. On the truly sweltering days I remind myself how I longed for these days when I was scraping the ice off my car in the dead of winter. Today is a good day to set out some sun tea and splash in the kiddie pool with my youngest.
Every time I get the pleasure of seeing a VW bus going down the road I can't help but smile and wish I had one. I am a proud owner of a 1993 V dub Cabriolet (in excellent shape btw) I am now wanting a New Beetle turbo. It will be hard to replace my old girl but I think it is time.
That beautiful moment when the sun fades and the brightest stars and planets become visible.
I always wanted to be an artist but considered being a surgical nurse or an astronomer, hmm...quite the variety! I am drawn to the stars like some are to the ocean. I find peace, comfort and a closeness to our creator. Looking at the stars makes one's worries feel much smaller and less significant.
Anyway, this painting seemed to paint itself. I was really in the moment. I wish that could happen more often then again it wouldn't be so special if it did.
