Sunrise, Sunset...



We go from a sunrise in the Smokies to a sunset in the desert. I guess the theme is scenery. I can't paint pictures of people or animals, but I seem to do okay at scenery. I ended up scanning both pictures directly to a file, so some of the picture is missing because the canvas was bigger than the scanner. In the picture of the Smokies, there is supposed to be a pale yellow sun coming out of the clouds at the right of the picture, so imagine it there, if you will.
Other than that, I don't have much to say. In spite of the lovely summer weather, I have been feeling kind of down, which is unusual for me, cockeyed optimist that I usually am. I guess everyone goes through down periods once in a while, but I sure would like to regain my usual cheerfulness. It make life so much better to look through rose-colored glasses than gray-tinted ones, even if it isn't always realistic. I'm sure this will pass, though, because, as you know, life is good...

Your lovely paintings always put a smile on my face. Wish we were closer, sounds like we could both use a hug today!
But, as you say, life is good!
I'll email you soon!

I like them both, but the mountain one is my favorite. I'm sure I'll like it better once I see the sun.

I can imagine why you're down. Kick him, and come visit us.
