Hello! Hello Rain! Rain on Mingus. Dark and foreboding. The sun is above us now, but we had two brief spritzing’s. Heaven! I hope it lasts.
Awhile back I took these photos. I changed phones, and the new camera is great! I need to learn how to use it.
I’m very excited. On my old phone this would just look like a fuzzy yellow blob. Never knew there was a trail on the hill. Wow! Haha. Amen for free upgrades!
The Sun loves the Moon so much that he dies every night to let her breathe, and in return, she reflects his love. Jeffrey Fry
I am taking part in Karen Abend’s Sketchbook Revival. This is my second event. I am days behind, but I am having so much fun. You receive two sessions a day, videos to follow along. And each instructor offers free gifts, more lessons, tips, or inspirations. The workshop runs for several weeks and it is free. You work at your own pace, and can start at anytime. Take a look!
I love meeting the instructors, new artists to follow, and learning new ways to be creative. Watercolor, mixed media, collage, journaling. And that is just the first days!
ps… the rain has cleared. LOL 🙂
Wishing you JOY!
The mountain waits all day for the night when his Moon will be finally bright. Suyasha Subedi
The moon was rising over Mingus while I worked. I think somehow it found its way to the paper. That was not a conscious decision. I just felt it needed some brightness.
While editing, I thought to tone down the Tawny. The pink. Does it look pink to you too? Tawny is listed as a light brown to brownish-orange color. This is the mid-value of the color. You may not notice a difference. But I’d be curious to know which you prefer.
I am not sure this next one is finished. It needs something. I will continue with it. Suggestions are always welcome.
I am laughing at myself. I got all excited about the snow. Little did I know a blizzard was on the way. The beautiful scene above is from two days after the storm. It may not have been a blizzard officially, but we were asked to stay off the roads for about 24 hours. We had a good solid day of heavy, blowing snow. It was AWESOME!
My window was covered in a layer of ice.
I’m sure this is the most snow we have had in the 5 years we have lived here. Scottsdale and Phoenix even had a dusting! Wowzers! By the second day, roads were dry and clear in our area.
We had more snow today, briefly. Then the sun came out and the cleared a bit. There was a roll of clouds hovering over Mingus. Then it spread out and moved forward, closer to us. I looked again, and it had collapsed, and was in the original hovering position.
I increased the vibrancy on this photo, but the clouds really were blindingly orange. It has been a BeAuTiFuL week in Arizona! Amen!
Silently, like thoughts that come and go,the snowflakes fall, each one a gem.
