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

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.

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!

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

    • 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:):) )

    • Tried to leave you a comment, but since you contacted me from Twitter, I wasn’t able to. Have a Twitter account, but I decided not to use it (that was in the time of the presidential elections, and I chose for peace of mind:) ) Thanks for your visit!


  1. wow Jesh, the second photo is gorgeous, the others too, but that one is truly beautiful .
    (love it more than a burned orange 😉 😉 )

    Have a united, splendid AbC-day / -week

    In less then 6 weeks starting Round 21


  2. 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.

  3. 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!!


  4. Yes Utah can be quite hot especially in the summer. Still there is beauty to be found. The mountains are impressive and that little ruin of a cabin with the fence was a charming find.


  5. That rushing water shot is fabulous – so cooling! I love the little ruin – looks like a new building could be built using it – very sturdy walls! Your painting of it is lovely.


  6. Beautiful images! Love the creative V. Those thistle flowers can be so pretty. Love the images (and painting) of the mountains. Thanks so much for joining Friday’s Hunt. Enjoy the rest of your week!
