Ho Hum, a Rainbow,,,

I don't think the sheep really cared- she probably sees it everyday. I wish I had a super duper camera to capture the radiance of this.

This looked like a spirit rising from the ocean. My Dad's farm is 1200 feet above sea level-so we can see 45 miles to the horizon - and it's 110 miles from side to side.
Makes for a fabulous veiw. Its wasted on these guys... but not me!
I fooled around with some sumi ink today- wasn't a big oil painting day.

Tomorrow I am taking a workshop with Darell Hill- a Big Island plein air painter.

Ah, we needed a rainbow here - woke up to 35 degrees and drizzle! Thank you! I'm jealous of your workshop - you must post about it! Love the shot of the 'spirit rising from the water! That's what it will always be to me now!

I agree, Kelley as it was spitting snow here. What a gorgeous view...and lovely little florals.
