Happy Mother’s Day

P1010020.JPG

Our area went from warm and wonderful to rainy and raw day after day but with Alberta CA sections burning up as well as other places here and abroad I have very little really to complain about.

This is my Bleeding Heart that sits facing the east in my yard wonder if she would like just a tad more light. 🙂  I know I would

I have still been at it with Watercolors but not at such a breakneck speed now I think and mix color with clear intent and try to catch a couple of lessons a month but with art gallery having their grand opening and a few shows I entered in their Theme Show format I am doing a little more photography infact joined a meetup group right above studio to join in on some challenges as it is a low key group that seems willing to share ideas on sharing your shot in a better light as well as places to meet up and shoot like they just had a meetup at a Steampunk gathering.  I have not done any of that yet but just entered my 3 shots for this month “Body Parts”  I will not bore you with photos but will tell you I had one of my bare foot in the freshly tilled soil of my organic garden yes my feet were clean but frozen by the time I was done working, JT my Border Collie most of you know from photos and stories of course had a spot this time a close of her beautiful eye how I love this dog now turning a year older today I swear I do not know where the time went.  The third shot I took was of my boyfriends 1950’s truck then I did some wild processing on photo just so they would be all different and not boring like my Birthday ride oceans scenes I shared with them last month for “Power”  has the sea has a hold on me, that lighthouse will be above where my ashes are spread and the force of a wave is anything but weak but you know where my head is at most days.

I will try to get more photography printed and hung in local shows and online they sell well enough to pay for my painting supplies so others must like the plain simple beauty of what is.

Hope you are all doing OK I am off to read some of your blogs have a wonderful week!

OH I forgot I took a night with a friend and tried Acrylic photo latter

It poured again this morning but they promised sun by this afternoon

So we headed north into Maine to look for treasure and so exercise.

The dog and I got too much time on the beach both of us hurting bad.

He found earrings and change.

We saw a hint of the sun as we headed out across the marsh on our way home

Too many rain drops getting on the lens so I did the best I could with these

I will try harder the next time.

 

Peace

Trippin on the Color

We loaded early for our get-a-way .

We were up against the weather.

The forecast called for heavy rain

all weekend long but the color will

not wait on a sunny day.  We headed

north the quickest route.  We got

there before the pouring rain.  The tent

went up and now it was really wet.

Then we set up the shelter over our table.

The dog was disgusted we had no time to play.

We raced like crazy to try to keep every thing

dry as we could.  It was a horrible weekend to

camp but our friends also were gluten for this

as well so with laughter and Rum we set about

having some fun.  The fire pit was loaded with wood

and when it was roaring and throwing off heat

meals were made, drinks mixed and chatter began.

We talked till we were so tired we had to say goodnight

though it was already morning.  We never saw the

Full Harvest Moon actually we did not see much being

fogged in as we were.

They found gold.

I took the dog out for a ride to find some color of our own.

Here are a few to show you what we saw and I will share more

after I warm up and sleep in my own bed.

Can’t wait to see what you have all done while I was away.

Peace

Rain

Rain

Glorious rain is falling now

The rivers will  replenish

Chance of a Tornado has come and gone

The truck has escaped another blemish

We were under the gun all day

So glad it waited till now to start

All the families who went to the beach were able to stay

Bad weather these days is not for the weak of heart.

We need the rain to make things grow

The lawn here actually has begun to crunch

I will be able to wait a week to mow

I hope by then it is soft enough to sit upon to have a beautiful lunch

Rain Coming?

I was sure of it!

I  still grabbed the leash.

JT sat in front of me, she loves  this new thing

WALK.

We take off, even though the skies are looking crazy bad here in the mountains.

I put the phone and camera in a bag, I was certain we would be caught in a downpour.

We were not.

We reached the top of an enormous hill and it was still.

I could hear my heart beating from the steep climb

JT was having a blast chasing her stick.

I was having fun capturing some pretty shots of the sky and flowers, that waited for us at the top.

Life is GOOD, the trek back is all DOWNHILL!
