Here is my final painting from my beginning acrylic painting class. I plan to play with it some more.
Walking out the breakwater to the lighthouse we thought we were way before sunset. It is kind of dangerous to walk back in the dark. You will see why in the upcoming photos. Totally worth the walk! I loved it so much we came back for sunrise the next morning!
More from Maine tomorrow!
This was inspired by an awesome blog I recently discovered. Here is the challenge:
“The MomHood has a daily feature Monday through Friday, sharing an inspirational quote or mini challenge. So this challenge will run next to those, giving you two quotes a day (or more) for the next two days.
The rules to this are simple:
I like how MomHood invited anyone interested to join the challenge and I would like to do the same. Share a link to your post as a comment so we can all share some inspiration.
Have a beautiful day.
I struggle with depression and the darkness of December in Wisconsin can be a challenge of a different kind. Last winter I stumbled across the idea of looking for delight in the light to be found in this darkness. Of course the light of my life is captured in this fun holiday light extravaganza and is the perfect place to start this journey.
We are not big on decorating our house with a lot of Christmas lights, but for the past few years we have gone to these outdoor lights festivals as part of our holiday celebrating. I have enjoyed playing around with trying to capture the lights and with getting interesting effects with photography of lights while on a horse-drawn carriage ride.
If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know that I love flowers. I paint them, doodle them and photograph them. I am learning that natural lighting can be such an asset and can be the upside of insomnia. Now when I can’t sleep on a weekend morning I wake up my husband and we jump in the car to get some early morning photos of beautiful place. I love the earth sculpture labyrinth that was home to this dewy blossom.
My younger son is going to college in Boston. The first time we went there with him I fell in love with a lot of the architecture. The library had such fabulous ironwork and I particularly loved these light fixtures.
On that same trip I took a self-portrait that I was quite happy with and it involved the light fixture in the beautiful old hotel we were staying in.
Last winter I was so very fortunate to go to Hawaii to see one of my good friends get married. The light in Hawaii was so lovely. I could post 20 photos of it to demonstrate it, however given the limits of this challenge I will only post this one. We were watching for the green flash as the sun went down. I didn’t see it, but certainly enjoyed the time to focus on the sunset. That was one of the things that I really loved. Every night crowds of people stop to watch the sun set. That doesn’t happen in small town Wisconsin. Aloha.
What brings you delight? I hope you have a beautiful day.
Aloha! I’m back! I haven’t sorted all of my photos yet, but here are a few I took with this challenge in mind!
Wave and sunset with sailboats and surfer
The path to the top of Diamond Head – see the tiny people?
Haiku Road – how poetic! The funny thing was, we had just been talking about Haikus and there it was!
Byodo-In Temple – I’m so glad I made it here!
