taking time to focus
It was beautiful today. Sunny and eighty degrees. This week’s theme for our Focus On Life challenge, hosted by the lovely Sally at The Studio Sublime, was to take time for ourselves. Well I did take it even though I spent it with the wee ones. They pretty much were doing their thing though. I took my camera out with me and snap snapped whatever moved me. These are a few things. Might seem so ordinary to most, but I was drawn to the colors and textures all around me like those faint clouds in that gorgeous sky. They looked like fish bones. I started a sketch with a fish skeleton in the sky. We’ll see where that goes. The warm tones on the picnic table umbrella pole next to the wood that is starting to split a bit. The boy’s fascination with a copper poppy. Some pre-formed beads I mushed around while sitting out there. So I wasn’t alone, but I still consider it me time for sure. Check out what the other participants had to say about those precious moments they took this week. Thanks for stopping!
