When for the sixth time, a vision started forming in front of me,
I immediately was struck with the incredible heat, which would
have been unbearable if I had not known the heat
of Southern California. The sun was just too blinding hot
to look at. Luckily there was some shade
in front of this mountain ridge. My tongue was stuck
my lips too parched to call out anything.
My hope of sleep had by now flown away.
Have not told you yet, that it took me two years
after the visions, before I started painting them.
I started with this one, because it was the most familiar
of all these weather disasters I had experienced.
It became one of my favorite paintings from this series.
Chose a mountain range in Colorado Springs (the Garden
of the gods), where I was for a week to accompany Hubby
for a job (Another deck:)). Loved the rocks there.
So intensely red. The man was not
in my vision. I added him for clarity,
that it was more urgent than a just dry day in summer.
It was finding water, or die. I call it my Picasso
touch, for the style reminds me of his early period.
Did I ever tell you where we had our honeymoon
turned out to be the birth place of Picasso?
This opposite view is at the East side of Yosemite Nat. Park.
Foam-crested waves, the sound of the water,
watching the shadows move. I could sit here for hours
and hours breathing in this atmosphere.

Hope this qualifies for Street photography of
Weekend Reflection. Good job, mom to let your child explore!
October leaves for Makro-Tex
Funny that Thirsty is so opposite from the rain
for One Word Sunday!
Rain at 3000 feet in the mountains is very
different than in town or city. The day before, the
temperature plummets 10 degrees. There are always
floods, here and there, since there are only run-offs
at certain places. Everything gets drenched with water:)
One Word Sunday
Goodbye summer – for most of you. Not yet where I live (Texas)
Have no idea why the blue of the sky in Huntington Library
Gardens did not continue in the lower region,
but there’s probably a technical answer to it.
Please, I don’t want to know the answer:):)
