These beautiful Sunsets also inspired me to write a poem:

Overwhelming Beauty

The sunset light was approaching
the soft curved hills.
Evening was entering like a fierce painting
in the sky.

How amazing colors
in a new dimension that only
nature and someone above
has the power to create.

I felt that overwhelming presence
a strange feeling surrounded me,
all over like holding me
in a tight and breathtaking embrace

excitement and power for
something that I see unbelievable unreal
but truly real.

I am glad I was there
grabbing the drops of this
overwhelming beauty.

-CR

Wish you all a great weekend!

Thank You!
Thank You!

– Girl With Koi –
Day #7 World Watercolor Month

 

This is Day #7 of the World Watercolor Month  today I was debating deciding what to paint.  I also wanted to paint something different and combine a girl face with an animal, I love to do that lately. Today painting is titled “Girl With Koi” I love the Japanese Koi fish their colors are beautiful. I was inspired to combine a Koi and a colorful and glamourous girl together in a vortex of blue water.

” Koi or more specifically nishikigoi, are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi varieties are distinguished by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Wikipedia
