Collecting The Light

Collecting The Light

I love evenings at the lake: a shower after a full day at the beach, BBQ supper on the deck and then out for a walk to watch the sun set (and maybe even some ice cream). Every time I see the sunlight coming through the trees I am captivated by the kaleidoscope of colours. It is almost like the branches are trying to collect the beauty of it all.

Love this and Happy Valentine's Day, and Month of Love.

You are an amazing painter!

Sounds heavenly!! And beautifully captured! It reminds me of where I walk Sherlock (our Lab) every day... There is a wood at the end of our garden and at certain times of the year, the light streaming throught the array of coloured leaves is stunning!

Nicki said...

Thank you Barbara! The month of love has been good! I hope you are receiving lots and lots of love.

XO Nicki

Hi Sandra- I have painted this idea several times and I don't seem to tire of finding a way to express the light passing through the branches.
