After priming some closet doors, I felt in the mood for painting, and pulled out The Nebula and played with it a bit more. It still needs more work, but it now looks like this:
I'm pleased with the depth of colour and how it is flowing across the page. The planets are not as defined, and I think that adds some mystery.
What do you think? Does it look like gaseous matter? Can you see the sheen of the interference acrylic paint?
I would like to introduce a white, streaming cloud across the page, but I'm not sure if it would enhance what's there, or not.
What are your thoughts on this?
Sunday afternoon. I began my regular walk with Cody-dog. Hat, mittens, jacket and leash, and we were out the door, clomping down the deck stairs.
Hearing a roar coming from the nearby beaver pond, we set out to investigate the cause.
The beaver pond was frozen over, and water was escaping in a plume over the dam.
Frothing and foaming, cascading over sticks and tree limbs, onto rocks, boulders, and bedrock, the water swept furiously downhill.....
it seethed and fizzed....
spouting and splashing its spray onto tiny branches, freezing into tree-cicles......
roiling and bubbling, it crashed onto itself, whirled and surged over soil, and stone.....
swelled, then calmed.
We had found the cause.
Later in the afternoon, we went for a drive down the road, and came across these beauties:
Reintroduced into the area, the elk herds are growing and prospering, although causing area farmers much grief, as they knock down fences and trample or demolish crops. They are beautiful creatures. This grouping numbered around 15. At times, we have seen up to 30 or more in one group.
I hope you've had a lovely Sunday.
Thanks for visiting.
