Hello All Seasons Bloggers
The photo link for All Seasons is open this week from July 1 till Wednesday July 4, 7pm, Pacific time
Great to read your happy as well as difficult or agonizing experiences last week. Love the variety and your story is always worthy to be told! Unfortunately on this earth things are not perfect. Only in heaven we do not have to deal with death, sickness or injustice anymore!
Sorry Leeanne (Laypalor) and Sasa, I haven’t been able to reach you by email, but would appreciate it if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – so I can reply to your contributions – thank you!
One cannot see on a canvas or paper how much work it was to make that painting, or in which circumstances it was painted.. Here are a few scenario’s you might encounter when you take painting gear with you to paint some plein airs in a nature park (tongue in cheek, am still breathing, so I survived). And yes, I don’t mind when you laugh at wimpy me:):)
This is close to Bridal Veil (waterfall). The roar of this (617 feet high) waterfall is pretty loud and impressive. Am sitting at the edge of the mist of the waterfall, and even though it’s summer I’m in the shade and have a hat, and hoodie on, and another hoodie like a blanket on my lap, to keep myself warm. Was it worth it? I think so.
In my “Afar” post right below (CLICK on Title)
you see the top of the Bridal Veil waterfall.
A few steps away from the N. entrance of Yosemite at around 9000 feet. Taken this shot in the summer.
One time I decided to paint an oil painting in the snow here. It was the first time at this location, and after half an hour my oil paint started to get hard, and I decided this was also the last time! Finding out my paint as well as I have limitations!
An awesome, awesome view to paint. But stay away from the shade and the water. The mosquitoes here are so big and aggressive I put Deet on my arms and legs to survive. Yes, I know it’s poison, but it’s getting killed either way, by Deet or by the mosquitoes, lol.
This Wednesday the USA-ers will look up there to see the Red White and Blue waving!
A HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
