My current colour obsession
I know that the Pantone colour of the year is emerald, but my eyes are drawn more to this combination more than other colours.
The roses are about a week old, but I think that helped highlight the veins and threads through the petals.
I need to take up dyeing and painting again … so I can recreate something like this …
I thought this looked like the Christmas angels swooping down from the top of the tree.
‘Don’t you see the ladies, Mom?’, asked the boys. ’Look, the face, the wings, the skirt …’
Yes, indeed. It remains one of the boys’ favourite orchids. They always look out for those.
My last sunset in Entebbe … and it didn’t disappoint.
It was like three sunsets in one evening … every time I would look up, the colours seemed to change.
And on the other side of the lake, a different reflection …
All with that same water-colour wash effect …
I’ll really miss these sunsets …
Another colourful sunset here …
Totally mesmerized by the daffodils and day-lilies. I couldn’t get enough of the colours. I had to move in closer.
Not close enough. Another step closer.
And another step in to get closer.
Yes, I was hanging over them.
Okay, I was trying to come up with a name to describe this sunflower.
I don’t know if this is a variety of a sun flower, or perhaps it’s a sunflower that’s slowly drying?
In any case, I was fascinated with this huge flower, as you can see.
Aren’t those colours gorgeous?
