Montana Summer

this piece came to life
due to summer storms

in the past month i have experienced two trees
being hit by lightning
the sound of a hit is SO dramatic!

bits of tree fly everywhere 
even hang from other trees
the storm then passes and skies clear
rainbows rise above
flowers dance under the sun

hard to know there was ever a storm
there is one less tree standing

Montana Summer!

they say if you don't like the weather:
wait five minutes!

oh my my, Last week of SOC! Week 6


I am amazed at how 6 weeks of summer have flown by!

Summer of Color is a bit of a count down

she has chosen colors for us to use each week in our art
some colors that thrill us
colors that we might not have chosen ourselves

it has been a wonderful time of getting to know my relationship with color
those I tend towards
some I do not

I have come to like some colors together that I have 
steered clear of in the past

this weeks colors:

Raspberry & Tangerine
with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon

Drawing Challenge: What's That?

fairy: what's that inside her belly?
owl: facets of her spirit
fairy: ahhhh

such a fun week 
considering: What's that? 
lots of animal sounds
tiny crunching sounds inside of logs
rustling in the bushes
life energy within words that are spoken

for fun, what's this?

with an interesting theme
