Rainbow Bluff ~ I guess I was inspired by the piece of rainbow I saw the other day but couldn't think of a good title for this one. This is 9 x 12 inches and acrylics on Canson canva-paper.

A Piece of Rainbow ~ I know I post lots of rainbow pictures but every time I see one I have to run outside with my little digital camera. We have had an awful drought the last couple of months here in Virginia but today we actually had some rain clouds and a tiny bit of rain this morning and evening. When we got home from going out to eat, I was coming in the back door and saw this amazing sky with clouds in front of the rainbow! The only part I could see what what is in this picture. It was sunset time and my camera must have automatically set to the sunset setting because I don't remember the clouds looking this bright orange or yellow. I just had to share these!

For my Youngest (baby) Sister Betsy ~ She is 6 1/2 years younger than me and is a dedicated, very smart and hard working pediatric nurse and she now trains new nurses. She was the one who was the primary caregiver for my Mom when she was so ill and went through so much. She liked this painting and recently celebrated her birthday so I told her this painting is her birthday gift! I can't wait to travel to Kentucky (soon) to see her and give her her birthday present! It is finally feeling like fall here in Virginia, as you can see by the flowers and decorations on the deck, I love this time of year!

Tree of Gold and Earth Meets Sky ~ Hi, I'm finally getting around to posting the pictures of the two acrylics paintings that I finished last weekend. The first one is 5 x 7 inches on 140 lb. watercolor paper and the bottom one is larger at 11 x 14 inches on Canson Canva-paper. I thought I had lost the second painting when it fell behind the dryer the other night! I like to set paintings in progress up on the shelf over the washer and dryer. There is good light up there and I can study them while I'm on the computer and change something if I need to. Anyways, after it fell behind there, I tried everything and couldn't get it out but my husband rescued it the next day and it was OK! I was afraid he would fall behind the dryer too LOL. Well another week is gone and TGIF!!!

SPIRALING INTO COLOR ~ These are some paintings I've been working on this week and I was playing around with spiral shapes and color. These are all painted in acrylics, the top 2 are on watercolor paper, the 2nd is a 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas, and the last one is an 8 x 10 inch canvas board. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and TGIF!!
