Stopping at the library, the grocery store, the sunset

I stopped at the library tonight to drop off some magazines I was trying to clear out. Hopefully someone will be thrilled to look through them, cut them up etc. I stopped at the grocery store under the premise that having some food in the house would be good. And I stopped at Kristy’s Barn to see the sunset. I’d already seen some lovely rays in the grocery parking lot.

I’m a big believer in mostly enjoying the view and snapping photos also but what the heck I even pulled out the tripod.

Here’s a Flickr Album with all the unedited photos:

Tonight’s Small Painting

adventures in blue and yellow – now dry

but this time in paint. They change so much in the first 24 hours and of course scanning is better than handheld photos. First one is a quarter-sheet size – 12″ x 16″, second an eighth or so. Third one is still being experimented on.

Light and Clouds

Today I saw an impressive cloud stack to the north while I was driving home:

In my rear-view mirror I caught glimpses of the sun and clouds settling to a bright colorful show before sunset. All I could think was – hmmm that would be fun to do with paint! These photos were taken while pretty wet. Maybe there will be more to do when it’s all dry – we’ll see.

The End of A Day Off

Winter’s here. Yes there was some sleety, snowy, mixed-precip sorta stuff but tonight friends, there was roof avalanching.

After a day of reading news stuff and trying to wrap my head around what a person might do, I watched a movie (tiny dose of Cumberbatch – August Osage County) and then I headed off to make paint hit paper. Has luck would have it, a piece of Arches came to hand so I felt it just had to start off well. Now it really needs to dry before finishing and that’s ok because I’m sort of finished myself.

Sunset, October 11

I did spend some time at home and all but the trip to Ghent (all those squirrels and all the rest and even a couple groundhogs) this morning and the trip out tonight to check out clouds was well worth it. Click on the photo below for the whole album.
