on the edge of the day there is glorious light
I am grateful for having to travel 70+minutes and 65kms each way to work every day.
Well, actually I’m not grateful that I have to travel that much as it costs a lot in petrol, but I am thankful that I have a reliable vehicle to do it in, and I am grateful that most of it is country highway driving which gives me time to look at the passing scenery. I have really enjoyed the last two evenings drive home because they have included the sight of beautiful cloud formations.
Tonight, in fact, there were lots of “Mother Ship” cloud formations. Don’t know what a Mother Ship cloud looks like? Imagine a big fat ovoid of solid fluff, red running stripe down the centre of the cloud – that’s it – A Mother Ship Cloud – MSC for short. There were many, many of all sizes tonight, long slim cigars, fatter sleek sports blimps, small cutters and huge carrier ships. I’m actually a bit worried that THEY really are here – and hiding behind the fake MSC formations.
Needless to say, I did not get a chance to stop and take a photo before the light was too low to make it worthwhile, but I did visually soak it up, and it was glorious.
To make reparations for the lack of MSC photos, please accept this “edited” version of our sunset from the last day of April. In reality it was glorious, deep reds across the sky, and I have just “deepened” it a bit in the editing for pure indulgence.
I hope that your life is filled with many moments to be thankful for.
It’s been a colourful and fun week.
I take comfort from the stars,
when I think,
that someone up there,
may be looking down here,
and feeling the same as I.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied with “inside” art stuff lately, but here are a few photos from outside.
Yesterday is was very warm and today there is a gentle drizzle, so you can almost hear all the plants sighing with happiness as they drink it and feel refreshed.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope your weekend has had that effect too.
Nature makes the best beautiful.
I love all sorts of colours – some of my favourites from this month.
Resin, I’m falling for resin. I love these little resin & alcohol ink “bits”. These will be necklaces eventually.
January has been a month of outside vs inside
Inverted Arum Lily
garden and art.
Resin on Serving Board
Alcohol Inks on Marble Coasters
Trying to choose between them can be hard.
Like finding the balance between light and dark.
So when I find time for both it is wonderful.
