CLOUDS OF THE DAY ...


Well, no clouds but maybe this little Angel (can you see her?!) resides up in the Clouds.  That is, when she is not in the Fire!

This is my friend and fellow Artist Carrie Jacobson from Virginia.  She was in Arizona doing several shows and she stopped by on her way through.  It was a short but fun visit which included a quick trip out into the desert and a tour of the town (such as it is!). 
That's our old guy Roscoe with Carrie. (She's very much a dog person)  Note her license plate ... I'm so jealous!  

Please check out her website here www.jacobson-arts.com  She does wonderful Palette knife paintings and I know you won't be disappointed!

Ghosts.  I a see Ghost.  A really scared Ghost!

CLOSE YOUR EYES AND REMEMBER

12 x 12"  Acrylic on Textured Wood Panel


I posted this once before but I wasn't quite satisfied with it so I went back in and changed the trees on the right, added the orange bush to bring some color forward, then added a little more depth of color overall.  :)

Isn't this amazing.  This is a sunrise here about 2 weeks ago.
I wonder what the message was here ...
