JANUARY DETAILS

 

Looks romantic eh?
My Corner of the World

 

 

On second thought, romantic ….uh …. maybe not so much, but definitely  has character!
Thurs. Doors

 

 

 

Like a bird swooping down, I discovered her
two days before Christmas,
tightly in between two  African Violets.
What a lovely surprise, just in time!

This seems a month of  finding things.
A sketch I made of myself
while looking for another sketch.
Sundays Best

 

 

Am on a reading binge right now, and found this list of a friend
whom I had loaned the book to.
This is how he read his Reader’s Digest
List version with page numbers. No surprise
if I tell you he’s a math prof.
One Word Sunday: List

 

 


Love the way this came out. It looks like the lamps are outside.

in Aliso Viejo, close to Laguna Niguel.

The “winter” in Southern California
is much more dry than in the mountains
of Northern part of the state.
It reminds me of the color of chocolate:)
Makro Tex: Dry

 

 

 

Visiting the ducks of our daughter’s family.
They purchased 10 of them as cute little fur ball
babies!

  5. The color of the mountains in your photo do look chocolate. I hope I remember next year or at the end of this year to see if the mountains here look like chocolate. I’ve always thought of the mountains as being green, golden brown, or somewhere between the two.

    I like the self-portrait and I’m completely puzzled over the list. I understand they are page numbers but I don’t understand why.

    1. Sorry, I was too much in a hurry about my friend’s Readers Digest version. It was for Debbie’s challenge – this Sunday asking for “List.” I thought it was characteristic for a Math prof to put down the page numbers, but not the subjects!
      He probably would remember, by looking at the pages, which chapters they represent. I would be totally lost, because I don’t remember any by seeing page numbers.

    An unusual list, Jesh – way too organised for me.
    And I liked your self-portrait – a great find. I hope you found what you were looking for as well.

    1. Am probably more like you, Deb – things happen organically instead of planned beforehand (unless it’s about work of course. Thank you about the self-portrait, I was pleasantly surprised -as a first impression, not bad -, and I did find what I was looking for too!

    1. Thank you, Donna, It’s off the grid:):) My kids call it “in the middle of nowhere” (chuckle), but it gives me the quietness to do a lot of painting.

    2. I like “in the middle of nowhere” kinds of places. Our summer home in Greece is such a place. Peace and quiet is underrated. Enjoy your quiet space to be creative!

    In the Netherlands 2019 has mainly been grey so far.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. I guess I’m still a city-slicker, wanting to look buildings nice and clean! The reflection was a happy accident! Keep our fingers crossed for the rest of the year to be “not grey!”

    1. Thank you Norm. With doors like that, there is immediately the thought – should I even post it?? (still too much applying city values, that everything must be clean and not damaged!). So, it’s good I’ve seen others who posted similar doors:)

    1. Thank you, Deborah – it’s fun to see the moon here much more often than in South. Calif. And when it’s full moon it’s so light at night that I think I’ve forgotten to put off an outside light and go outside to check:)
