365…247

Well, wasn’t that a storm! During the wee hours of the morning most of Ottawa-Gatineau experienced a very loud and lingering thunderstorm with plenty of lightening and rain. It was the topic of conversation around the water cooler, as was the Bahamas.

A very timely reminder that your circumstances can change in an instant and things are just that…things. Grab your loved ones and hug them close.

I tried another water-on-water technique for today’s painting, a little beach scene.

I got home a little after 6 and the sun had already started its descent, almost at eye level with me as I walked around my flower garden. The golden rays bathed my garden in a beautiful light as the birds flew from flower to flower and tree to tree, calling out. Last night’s unfurling sunflower is almost completely open this evening!
