A Post Full 'o Colors ~ I have several photos of colorful things to share in this post. I have a small painting going on, but it's still in the 'doodoo' stage right now, so I'd rather just share these photos. :)

I had to really zoom in to get this picture of the bright yellow finch out in the backyard. He was sitting in our tulip poplar tree, as bright yellow as a canary.

Big blue sky with a jet stitching up the clouds. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago.

I took this picture yesterday right before it got dark. This pink rainbow (yes, it was really pink, this photo is unretouched) was to the south and the whole western sky was a bright hot pink! The awful weather we've had the last couple days have created some awesome looking skies this week!

I've wanted to snap some photos of finches around here, but they are much too fast. They've been zooming around the yard in pairs.
Nice rainbow!
Looking forward to seeing your new painting.

Hi Lynn,

I wanted to write and tell you about a new forum for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives you a gigabyte of space to showcase your portfolio, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself and link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

All the best,
Sarah at

Thanks Jeannette! I thought that jet reminded me of a needle going into the clouds, good photo op.
Thanks Babs, I love the finches too. We have lots of cardinals but it's a treat to catch sight of the finches.
Hi Genie, thanks so much for the nice words!
Hi Sarah, that sounds like a great site and I will check it out, thanks!

Katie, I got lucky with catching that finch. I wish the photo was clearer, I had to really zoom in to get that shot.
