SOC: red red and metallic

even in dancer's pose
she felt a bit like a mountain
grounded and alive

tiny little painting
smaller than it looks here
2.5x3.5 inches
hard to do a face that tiny

quinacridone red
permanent deep red

diluting reds.... and pink appears

how to tease a mouse


the longer they kept her
on the plate
under the bell jar
the more she began to vanish

please set her free

thank you Joke

SOC: purple purple and yellow

not sure where this drawing came from
had a slightly different piece in mind
fun how art has a life of it's own
inspiring you each step of the way

purple purple and yellow are this weeks Summer of Color prompts

here is one of our local summer bunnies:
in winter they turn white

Summer Solstice!

Summer for me 
is a season to wander mountain roads

to do things that i begin to long for in the snowy months
deep seasons are like that
they each hold their unique activities

i still find it strange
that with the beginning of summer
the days begin to get shorter 
nights longer


Sweet and blessed Solstice to You all!
(whether is is Summer or Winter in  your land)
