I hope this post finds everyone well.
Linking up with Terri and her #SundayStills theme for the week, which is #Sunrise-Sunset.
Here is my sunset – across the Virginia Mountains
Last month, while on a sunset walk along the “canal walk” in Richmond Virginia, I saw this indoor art – and took a photo to share – love the reflection and the art inside had a sunset kind of vibe
Earlier this year, I shared about a piece of amateur art that I bought.
This is a little funny – but I had it hung up wrong for a few hours. I had not looked at this piece for a couple of months and so grabbed it and put it on a nail real quick (to assess the frame needs)- and thought the yellow was a sunset. I bought it while on a trip to FL and so it sat for a couple of months. I decided to hang it up and was going to reframe it (still might as I think a nice white frame would look better than the one it came with). Let me show you the wrong way I had it and then show you the artist’s name “Caroline” to show you the way they meant it to look:
Which way do you think it looks better?
The yellow burst upper right or yellow burst lower left??
I am not sure – also – do you think the frame should stay or should I explore with something else?
Now I know that not everyone will love Caroline’s painting. I never met the artist as this was for sale at a discount kind of clearance sale. But this piece spoke to me. It was the natural, raw, and unsophisticated feel to it. It was the rainbow of colors found in the piece, it was their use of space with sections of color. I felt the essence of this artist and can even connect some sections to the principles of design. This one-of-a -kind painting has sunset or sunrise glow to me.
The blooms for this week. Sunflowers!
Last year, Linda and I chatted about growing sunflowers summer 2021.
I decided to buy this little pack and the seeds are now in the ground. The package said 65 days to harvest – so I have about 55 more days to go. Keep you posted later this summer. And no pressure to grow any this year Linda.
I took this next photo for Linda – this public floor art (in North Carolina) reminded me that we think of bloggers as we go about everyday life – and hey, that might have been some sunset light coming in through those windows. It was later in the day. (linking to the Public Art challenge here )
That is all for today.
Do you have any sunflowers in the ground or in a vase?
Do you have any sunset or sunrise photos to share? If so, perhaps join Terri this week — and do check out her post because it is like a celebration of summer (here).
