Fall is in the air, the temperature drop from last Thursday was very obvious. Soon the colorful flowers will be replaced by colorful leaves. A time of reflection and hope. The changes in my life, have changed me over the last few years. I hope I am a better person, I have learned so much from my children....Patience, kindness, acceptance and forgiveness. Most of all inclusion and understanding of differences, we each have our story. We each add value to life and the world.

I used a pallet knife with oil paints on this 8x10 canvas. The last of my summer flowers.

Storm on the Bay

Summer storms on a sweltering day in August. The drama in the sky was captured in a photograph. Spoondrift, another delightful word, is a showery sprinkle of sea water or a fine spray from the tops of the waves.

Colorful Light Challenge

Gibigianna is the play of light reflected from water or mirror. A sunlight area or a woman who flaunts her charms. I saw this word and definition on my Pinterest feed recently. It fits the DPW challenge for this week.
