A shadow can tell you a lot. Time of day is just one thing. When you are drawing the plant it can give you an idea of the structure of the plant.
A door that is of the most importance to my dog. When it is closed she is confined and must rely on her human companion. When it is open there is freedom. While there may be more doors to be opened, at least she can freely roam the house and be a protector.
Nothing says warmth more to me than a fireplace with flames dancing over the logs. Cropping the image and using Illustrator gave me the pattern pieces for the quilt that I am working on. Additions will be a fireplace grate, logs and the boarders are still in question. Suggestions are gladly accepted.
Of course pets, people, and places come to mind when asked about something gone, but not forgotten. However, something I can’t get out of my head lately is a cloud formation I saw as I walked my dog. What were the winds doing to create such an unusual formation. Of course I saw a face and wanted to document the cloud. By the time I whipped out the phone to take a photo the face had turned into a the head of a dog. I am so glad to always have a way to capture a photo now conveniently in my pocket or purse..
Fascinating light show on wall. Is this a reflection or refraction from an unknown source? Never saw this before and haven’t see it since. The light put on quite a show as it danced across the space. The bay window could be the cause of the delightful image.
A nice sign at a place I love to visit. It is a lovely tranquil lake. Perhaps that is because you can’t swim in the lake. Fortunately we have beautiful beaches to cool off in the cold water.
The weekly photo challenge was Abandoned. The photo I posted for the challenge was taken at a friend’s house. It was the perfect reference photo for this painting. I was intrigued with the empty dog house snuggled under the tree. The scattered leaves made the little house seem sad there was not a frisky puppy keeping warm and safe under the protective tree trunk. This painting was a delight to paint and was titled Abandoned.
