Back to just blogging. Yesterday was kinda momentous, Mark and I spent the afternoon together starting to catchup on 20 years. For those who do not know Mark is my son and we have been estranged for all those years, until he recently got back in touch with me. It was a really good meeting and I really enjoyed talking with the man, the first of many such chats and meetings.
Coming back on the train (Standing room only) there was a stunning sunset. The sky was pink with streaks of blue, the clouds were under-lit reflecting this vibrant pink. At the centre and just below the horizon an orange pink glow, rays of light and colour spanning out from it. These rays might disappear behind the clouds and re-emerge above still in formation, more rays could be seen to flow toward the east. As the train continued north this dramatic sky continued to enthral me as I tried to capture the details the colours the layers and textures to memory.
Back at Newark it was dark, driving the last 50 miles through Lincolnshire the way was lit by a almost full moon occasionally obscured or partially obscured by cloud this was a big moon at about 45 degrees to the earth in the eastern sky. Memorable skies for a special memorable day.
Then this morning I made this card! Less is More's challenge this week is to use your sprays. I've not used them in a good long while, most are clogged. Clogged is great you get blotches rather than a mist. Some will not even blotch and have to be unscrewed the contents of the tube can then be tapped/dripped onto the surface. Others are not blocked and will spray giving a great blast of colour great for saying blow those neat lines away this is an eruption of colour. The silly sheep are stamped in Archival Sepia.
