NATURE MONDAY...

a little
nest
of
collected
mushrooms we found today...
not
edible
just
PRETTY!
this
is my
FAVORITE
oak
tree
in the whole
wide world!
it resides in
a shopping center
where we
grocery shop.
I wonder every single time I pull into the parking lot...
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE TODAY...
always
MIGHTY
and
MAGNIFICENT!!!

EARTH MUSIC...

 listening
to
BLIND PILOT
"3 rounds and a sound"...
painting...
looked toward the window...
 
Our upstairs is torn apart and some of it is intruding within my studio...
(things could always be worse, eh?)
I tripped over cording and saws trying to grab my camera...
it was worth it,
YOU SEE

now
YOU KNOW
YOU SEE

OWL...

SUNDOWN
this very night
while
a
HOOT OWL
has been making us
aware
of
his
EXISTENCE!
(for 3 weeks)
 
one of my favorite sounds to go to sleep to, then wake up to...reminding me of
NATURE
at it's
ESSENCE.
