Wait a minute while I put on my sunglasses again! This is super! You're searching for sunshine on a rainy day? I think you created it! I'm looking for flat water. Flat, flat, flat water. And no wind.

This is wonderful, Celeste! The silhouettes of the trees against that bright light is amazing. And the blue in the forefront moving into warmer color is perfect.

I am always so jealous of you artists who catch a moment in time so well

The cool blue shadows make the brights even brighter. What a sketch!

Thanks a lot! Now I've got sunspots in my eyes! At least I got a good look before they got too bad and I really like the painting.

This one stopped me in my tracks!
It's just the way of it - dark shaded trees and bright sunlight..how marvelous is the natural world if you have eyes to see it?
