An amazing start to the day…watching the sun slowly rise, the cotton candy-like clouds turn pink and purple, then golden. In the west, a rainbow arched over the field. It’s going to be a great day!
Can’t believe I forgot to mention the momma deer and her two babies were in a neighbour’s field tonight. Haven’t seen them for a couple of weeks and glad to see their ok. Oh, and the sundog in the western sky tonight. A day and night filled with signs!
A cool, dreary, rainy fall day is what it was like today. I turned the electric fireplace on this morning to heat up the living area and added fuzzy socks and a sweater over my winter pjs! Brrrrr… Great day for tea and teleworking!
It was actually sunny out early this morning and I got a sweet photo of the lower part of my flower garden.
I saw a chipmunk collecting sunflower seeds from the lawn, cheeks full, he ran up the stairs only to find me in his way. Cleverly he skirted around me by using a branch that was leaning against the veranda. I laid some sunflower seeds on the veranda, close to the doorway so I could take photos.
I wasn’t disappointed. He showed up but it seem he wasn’t too happy with being photographed.
Today’s painting is inspired by the sunflowers in my garden
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!
Farewell to spring! Looking forward to summer arriving tomorrow.
Sitting at my desk, wondering what to paint, I looked to my right and noticed the tissue box. It has a beautiful photo on it of a dock on the water with a yellow sunset. Found my inspiration!
It was getting late tonight when I realized I hadn’t taken a picture of the day. I grabbed my camera, stepped outside looking for something to catch my eye. A few shots here and there but nothing spectacular. Then I remembered my new phone. Google Pixel 3a xl. It’s supposed to take awesome pictures. So I grabbed it, stepped back out and began playing!
