EMBRACING JUNE

 

The Rush of Water
(One word Sunday, Tue Texture)

  1. Utah  could have used a rush of water in the summer when we were
    there one June.Even around dinner time it was still around a 100 degr. F.

 

 

2.  Maybe we would have seen more flowers than these thistles
See how the branch of the left thistle relates to the right one?
It looks like a V to me! Needed for Fri Hunt
(Through My Lens, Floral Bliss, Floral Fri Foto, Nature Notes, Fri Hunt)

 

Fri Hunt:
Begin with V: Image (2.)
Weeks Favorite: Rush of Water (1.)
Inch: plein air oil painting, 16 x 20 inch (5.)

3. These mountains were the view I could see at sunset from our cabin in Hurricane (name of the town!) in Utah.
(Travel Tue, Travel Photo Thurs., Sky Watch)

 

 

4. As we would turn from the cabin unto the road, we would see this cute little ruin
(Tue Texture, Tue Treasure, Fences)

5. Combined the ruin and the mountains around sunset (because that
was the only time my oil paint wouldn’t dry up so fast) for a plein air sketch. The same mountains as above, but standing at a different place.
Would call this Burnt Orange in Utah.

6. Green doors gives a refreshing feeling when it’s blazing hot outside!
(Thurs. Doors, Weekend Green)

 

 

 

7. The high arch reveals the reflection across the street.

    I enjoyed your rushing water Jesh. And I also enjoyed the gorgeous thistle that then provided calm.

    Thanks for joining OWS.

      Thank you Debbie! Both hubby and I are into capturing flowers, so this might be his rendition (he’s always willing to go on his knees to take a shot, and I not so much, so this might be his rendition:):) )

  19. Cute little ruin, Jesh. I love the vivid colours in your Burnt Orange painting. It reminded me of the hot summers in Spain, with its rich terracotta soil and vivid blue skies.

      You are so right about Spain. Do you sometimes wish you ere still there? The weather and culture are so different from Ireland! Utah’s temps in June were hard to take though (since California is at the coast, it’s always milder).

      1. I do miss the lovely winters we had there but the summers were always way too hot for me. We’ve been back once since we left, Jesh, but there are so many places I’d like to visit, I think it will be a long time before we return to Spain. Being on the coast is so nice in hot weather, isn’t it?

        Agreed, the Mediterranean summers are too hot (and on this side of the ocean too), so am glad we have air-conditioning that we can put on for 1-2 hrs. in the afternoon. Yes, the coast is nice, especially when you have a boat. If we ever come your way, I like a ride in it:):)

    Those doors are nice but the numbering sequence seems off no?
    Love the shot from Hurricane. I believe we stopped for lunch in that town one time on our way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Lots of great scenery around there 🙂

      Like I told Joey, it’s Californian numbering (no logic!!) Similar to our previous house – the house next door – on the corner, should have been 2600 , not our house!
      I’ll wait with your next comment till tonight, because I’m in the house for 10 min. to have a cup of coffee, and then back to work.

    I really like the mountain photo. Absolutely gorgeous. The oil painting too. I can relate to the quick-drying paint problem. I’ve done a lot of touch-up (house) painting in the desert, and it often dries way too fast!!
