that moment

Sometimes the dog is pulling your arm and you have an art fair in the morning and your son is scooping minnows in the creek, and you’re telling him it’s time to go and then the sunlight comes and hits a big tangle of dead forest undergrowth JUST SO and it all turns into a gestural scribble, a linear sculpture, a study of light & shadow. It’s nothing really. And, yet, it’s full of movement and life and death and struggle and some little bit of grace.

Sometimes all you get is that one moment, that one shot. And then it all keeps moving.

just add sun

A sunny day changes the whole color palette, especially in winter, lending vibrancy & pop to the whole landscape. Blue sky can be an absolute revelation, a backdrop for the play of warm, glowing light in a dark season.

Talk about color! Just when we all needed a boost…Mom to the rescue! She brought smiles, snacks, her usual helping hands, and an abundance of sunshine. Oh, and daisies, too! Thanks, Mom, for making everything a little brighter.
