May the fourth be with you! (It never gets old 😉)
It’s blue hour as I write this post, lounging in bed, watching the sunset disappear as the sky takes on the blue glow. It’s incredible. Nature is incredible. Mother Earth is incredible.
I had low energy all day making it difficult to do much. I rode my new bike around the laneway- felt like a ten-year old! I’m a little wobbly and need some work on turning but it won’t be long and I’ll be hitting the roads!
To combat the low energy I walked into the forest in my backyard, sat at the base of a tree under a canopy of a variety of trees, feet away from the river. A great hiding spot to watch the geese and ducks.
An old bitch tree fell over, a couple of years ago, and is slowly decomposing. It’s amazing to watch how the wood disintegrates leaving the bark intact. I harvested some pieces last year…some fully in tact, others just strips. I picked up a few more pieces today with the intention to paint on them.
This picture is only a small portion of the birch tree. Part of it fell onto another tree and it lays suspended in air. Another part lays on the forest floor.
For tonight’s painting, I was in the mood for something light and cheery…black-eyed susans fit the bill:
