Sunrises and Sunsets: My Next Chapter

Sunrises and sunsets are my favorite subjects to take photographs of and paint.  They signify a brand new start and a closing of a chapter.   I have started a new chapter in my life!  My husband and I have moved back to Texas after leaving over 20 years ago.  I enjoyed living in South Carolina for a several years but spent the last 20+ years in Florida.  It is great to be back in the Rio Grande Valley by family and were we were both raised.  I was also very fortunate to be able to continue my long career in higher education in Texas where I work for a university.   

As I turn the chapters in my life, I will share my love for paintings, nature and living well on this blog!  Living well to me means being a good steward of God's gifts, for the good of others to glorify and praise God.  I have enjoyed sharing my paintings over the years and am excited about painting new places in Texas.  

I have yet to unpack from our move, and will leave my art supplies in boxes until we find our permanent new home with a perfect art studio!  I took this photo of a misty sunrise on Singer Island, Florida. Now, it will probably be the next one I paint along with a the many sunrises and sunsets I will paint in Texas, especially those of my beloved South Padre Island!

John was focused on Chula and not the beautiful woman who rode by on the sunlit sidewalk next to a stream.  I knew when I took this photo, that I would capture that moment on a canvas one day.  I miss our little Chula.  She loved to go on trips with us.   I also painted this glistening waterlily painting based on a Florida marsh at sunset.   The carnival of colors are delightful and memorizing.  I am a big fan of Monet and can see his influence in the way I paint my waterlily paintings.  I remember visiting an art museum and admiring one of his waterlily paintings.  I asked the curator why the edges still had white  canvas showing and remarked that it looked unfinished.  She said that Monet
