We go to the field in the morning as light streams over the ridge & dewdrops flash points of light ahead of us. I recall the magic, mystery & wonder I felt so often as a child. 'You just knew" that anything was possible and that adventure was not only HERE NOW and was always up ahead as well!! Summer breezes continue the dance through my house with me. The pond awaits the next entry splash. Last evening I watched bats soaring thru the front yard as twilight deepened. Their sonar locating many pounds of skeeters as they swooped faster than Air Force fighter pilots! The Full Moon makes shadows as the night creatures begin their songs. I hope you are noticing the wonder & mystery in your life. Remember this is part of your own nature; your very own divinity & joy. Heron Watercolor: in private collection of Charles Sibley. Part of the Lake Series card designs which is available at stores & gallerys listed. Prints available as well.
Peace & love>>> Julie

Hooray for the red, white & blue! The sun rises over the ridge this season to wild azealeas, day lillies, sourwood blossoms & lots of juicy berrys. Waves reaching the shore with quiet lapping sounds are part of the landscape this season as well. Fireflys move through the evening trees and birdie wakes to sing at dawn. Butterflys are still chasing each other with great delight and pure abandon. The rhythms & cycles of the land, sky and water are a continual feast this season. Vision, touch, & smell - it all dances with the summer breezes, which bring it all home.
"The Radish" is a batik & art quilt reminding us of Nature's perfect design in creating. This perfect radish was grown in a friend's garden & she brought it to me herself. I was so charmed by the heart in place that I did a drawing to paint from later. This can be seen at Burton Gallery and is priced at $1500. I hope you are enjoying the fruits with your lovely sky picture of summer!
