Just as I determined that the chances of rain were too high to go out painting, the morning light came streaming in. The sunrise lured me outside, reminded me that my palette was all ready, and challenged me to paint before it's guilded edged form changed into a blinding light. Odd that I did this scene in the morning, because so many times I have photographed this palm in the golden glow of evening. I've even been other places looking for that special palm, and think what about the one in your own back yard? Remember the glow?
Guess I'm feeling nostalgic again this week. Recently, I shared about giving my girl away. Soon afterward I found it's equally emotional to give your boy away. But you toughen up in order to receive the next level of blessing- new people in the family! Here's a pic from "Back in the day" & a current one, teaching the next generation the essential skill of being your own photographer.
