Where were you at 7:19 Sunday Morning? I know, me too. In bed. I missed it. Didn’t hear a thing. The meteor. YES, a meteor!! It’s still unofficial. It could have been an earthquake. Or a sonic boom from a jet. But there was no air traffic at the base during that time (90 mi. south). And no official reports of an earthquake. The closest one at that time was in Oregon.

Is that cool or what? Well, cool because no one was injured. And the rest of us are still alive.

It was witnessed by a few people in Prescott Valley. In this video, at about 6:10, they show how it may have traveled, northwards, right in front of Mingus, and the hills I have so often painted. (Mingus is on the left, the hills are in front, and the smaller hills in the back are to the north.) But that is just one theory right now. Some reported windows and garage doors shaking. And others reported all the dogs in their neighborhood barking.

At first, reports said it was only heard or felt in our area, but later reports have said that Phoenix was aware of it as well. Time will tell, but I am eagerly following the story.

Day 13 And 14

Showing this a bit larger, so you can see some of the details. I love the grid marks on the left. That is the panel texture. These panels started with leftover paint on my palette. A swish here, a few marks there. Shiraz, blue, turquoise, rusty orange.

To finish, I added collage, dots and circles. Light Ivory painted on, and rubbed off. Kiwi green, and white Neocolor scribbles. The green is showing much more neon than it is in person. I really feel as if I did, well, not much at all. The bloom was pure accident. It all came together quickly. Nice when that happens!
