A wooden rowboat rocking gently in the harbor on a foggy day. It struck me that though it looked abandoned, an oar was at the ready. Looks can be deceiving, maybe it was waiting for the tide to change?
A Silver Spotted Skipper landed on the pink blooms of sedum in the garden. Resting in the sun for a moment, just long enough for me to snap some pictures. Then if fluttered away looking for a sweet nectar treat.
Sometimes when I paint a picture the sky color looks almost fake. Like it can’t possibly be that color. Other times, like in this painting, there was not a cloud in sight. I’ll admit, it made it a little easier to paint the sky!
When I visited The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens I was struck by the beauty of the simple pink flowers of the lilies. The soft yellow center reminded me of that day’s sunshine. I know I’m no Claude Monet, painting Water Lilies, but I sure enjoyed the experience.
