~ Water Colors ~

 I spent my Saturday late afternoon/evening in search of ... a project.  

I had not been to the beach in a while, so ... the beach it was. 

After a few stops along the way, it was already sunset by the time I got there, so I took lots of pictures as the sun was going down. I scrolled back over my work and was happy, but not thrilled.  By this point it was starting to get dark and that caught me by surprise.  I was quickly putting away my camera when I looked up and saw ... this ... in the sky.

It was dim enough that I was struggling a bit to even see what was in the view finder.  But I clearly knew where to point the camera.  Yesterday morning when I downloaded the pictures I was actually ... stunned

Today I remembered about some very very simple (read: cheap) frames I had purchased before I moved.  I have ink in my printer and I am good to go.  I am really enjoying the inexpensive nature of this new art for my home.

Free for the taking ... every ... single ... day.

  5. Mary you would be hard-pressed to find more beautiful art in a gallery than that you have around you. These are gorgeous shots of the sea.

    I went back to read some of the posts I have missed here. I am sorry for my limited time to visit, but I had to comment on the gorgeous slips you made for your furniture. They are amazing. I have made a few slips, but mine would never turn out this beautiful. I now have mine made for me, so admire so much women who can sew like this. Beautiful, beautiful!
