Now Christmas passed, however it was, good or bad, today is another chance or opportunity, to live fully in the now.
In need of blue skies, and hope your NEW YEAR will be filled with many of them!

Wherever I travel, I take a souvenir with me: a plein air oil painting  This one a reflection of a tree in a Happy Isles puddle in Yosemite Nat. Park
(from a slightly different angle than the above image).
I always smile when people tilt their head, because they think it’s shown upside down. (Travel Tue, ABC Wed.-Y)






Winter sky – a red glow on where the last sun rays of the day are on these trees.  Some of these (at least 60 feet) trees have been cut since last year, because of infestation of the beetle, so this is a historic photo-
colors are not edited! (Sky Watch)

  1. Wonderful pictures as always J….. I love to take pictures of what I call “upside down skies” — the reflection of clouds in the water, so many times they are prettier than the actual sky is… but I think your reflection painting is the best I’ve ever seen! Lovely. Hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you and yours a Happy New Year.


    • Thank you so much Sally for your kind comment about the reflection -it was a challenge to think upside down:) The holidays were great – thank you! Now I have to check if wordpress sends m message to typepad!


  2. Your reflection photo and painting are wonderful. Peaceful. Thanks, Jesh, for your generous words of encouragement these past few months. It means a lot to me. I missed your deadline for ALL Seasons this week. I’ll try next. A peaceful and joyful 2017 to you!
