I Love Sunrises

DSC_0042

The other morning I was sitting out on the porch enjoying my morning coffee and saw the sun start peeking up behind the trees.

The time was 6:08 a.m.

Little by……

Little it made it’s way up.

I also love the look of the trees in the foreground.

Now it is going up higher into some clouds.

All finished at 6:16 a.m. What a beautiful way to start the day.

Good Saturday Morning!

The sunrise was so pretty this morning, especially through the tree silhouettes, I just had to show you.

Last Saturday I participated in a craft show in Fort Wayne. Here is the table half of my booth. We had a fair amount of visitors but they were telling me that there were many of these shows going on that weekend. Tis the season for sure.

Then here is my display board. Again I received nice comments about my work. Sold a couple of prints and gave out my business cards.

I was at an antique mall looking for an interesting display and I found this old silverware box. I may paint it or I may not and leave the scratches and character. I haven’t decided yet.

DSC_0289

I put my note-cards I made from the carved stamps in it.

DSC_0300

I sold 9 painted rocks and got orders for 3 more. I was happy with that.

This past Monday evening I met my sister and niece at the Bottle and Bottega for a mixed media paint in with some wine. I thought this wall was really cute with the paint splotches.

Here we are with our paintings. It is hard to do a masterpiece in 2.5 hours.

My sister Linda concentrating on adding some flowing hair to her lady.

My sister also made some discs to put in the shower to open up nasal passages. She works with essential oils and these have lavendar, eucalyptus and rosemary in them. They smell great and I can see how it will help.

Lastly, foxes are big this year and I wanted to show these really cute placements that I picked up. They are sparkly and you can kind of tell that. I was taken by the cute face of the fox. Have a great weekend and as always…Thanks for stopping!

 

Venus

DSC_0868

A couple of weeks ago I went outside to enjoy the pretty sunrise, I just never get tired of them. I wasn’t going to take a picture of this one because it wasn’t unusual but just the usual loveliness. The moon and bright planet Venus in the upper right corner couldn’t be ignored though. The whole package had to be shared for those of you who don’t have time to look at the sky in the morning. Thanks for stopping by.

Sky Show

DSC_0485

On Monday morning the 8th, this was the sun. I tried to get it with my phone camera but it wouldn’t get the redness so I had to run in and get my Nikon so I lost some time. It was even more brilliant than this, very captivating.

DSC_0486

Last night, I was sitting on my swing by the pond just watching these clouds and sun. There were three different areas changing and moving. It was great entertainment. It seems as if this shot should include the sound of singing angels.

DSC_0487

The cloud is changing.

DSC_0491

It is starting to look like an axe.

DSC_0492

Cool sun-rays coming from the hole in the clouds.

DSC_0497

Here is another area of clouds right in front of me. If I were knowledgeable about cloud formations I am sure there would be a special name for this one. It looks like pictures of the atomic bomb when it explodes. There were definitely storms brewing somewhere far off though.

DSC_0499

Here it is, doing it’s quick change routine.

DSC_0512

The colors and reflection off the pond.

DSC_0513

There was a lot going on out there.

DSC_0514

I had inexpensive entertainment.

DSC_0515

I am loving the graduation of color, from light to dark.

DSC_0516

This looks like a reflection through a window on the ceiling.

DSC_0517

Darkness is coming upon the area.

DSC_0518

The reflection of the colors on the windows is breathtaking.

DSC_0522

Now for the lightening show in the far off distance.

DSC_0529

I struggled for the settings to capture these, but I did something right.

DSC_0533

Timing also for the lighting is difficult. I just kept clicking the shutter.

DSC_0538

I just couldn’t get enough of it all. We hadn’t had much rain by the time I went to bed. I think this time it was just all around us. As always, I appreciate your visit.
