Artist At Work October 1, 2012

A blank slate, neither
white nor black, deep indigo
blue of twilight hue

Deepening still, stars
appear with light winks, twinkling
across the night sky

Painted canvas stretched
horizon to horizon

Star artist at work

Aah . . . that’s better!

Wow, those colours are surreal! The star looks enormous.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

It’s a GIANT SUPER NOVA!

Or a planet.
Most likely, Jupiter.
Or Saturn.
But possibly Mars or Venus.

What?
Don’t look at me like that!
I’m an artist . . . not an astronomer.
I’ll leave the classification to others . . . while I enjoy gazing at the night sky in blissful ignorance. 😯

BFF says it’s . . . la bella luna! πŸ˜€

colonialist - October 1, 2012

Shhhhh! It works much better as a star!

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

I agree! Mum’s the word!

2. ryoko861Irene - October 1, 2012

So serene!

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, Irene . . . stars reign supreme.

3. Yaz - October 1, 2012

Your words with the photos are so lovely. Thanks Nancy.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Sidey’s themes are always a treat . . . especially when stargazing is involved!

4. Don - October 1, 2012

Beautiful, Nancy.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, Don. The night sky inspires.

5. Christine Grote - October 1, 2012

Really beautiful.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, Christine. Glad you enjoyed.

6. suzicate - October 1, 2012

Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, Suzi. I must say that just looking at this post makes me feel “at peace.” _/!\_

7. Three Well Beings - October 1, 2012

How beautiful! I can stare at a sky like that for hours. They only last a little while, though. What a treat that you were there to notice!

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Doing this post reminded me that we are overdue for watching a sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.

Maybe we’ll join the Drum Circle this Friday as they “keep time” with the setting sun.

8. Andra Watkins - October 1, 2012

That IS better. Lovely, Nancy. Those water vistas are something on a sunset or sunrise.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Watching the sun rise or set over an expanse of water never grows old.

9. kateshrewsday - October 1, 2012

Oh, the colours….enough to make one jump on the next plane out there…

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Someday, Kate! You can watch the sunrise over the Atlantic with Andra and then head a bit farther south to watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico with ME! 😎

10. barb19 - October 1, 2012

Absolutely beautiful Nancy!

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, Barb. Nothing like a sky at evening tide. πŸ™‚

11. klrs09 - October 1, 2012

What an enchanting sky — beautiful.

nrhatch - October 1, 2012

Thanks, klrs. We’ve been having some lovely sunsets lately . . . full of pinks and purples. Delightful.

12. jannatwrites - October 1, 2012

Love those pictures. Sunsets on water are so pretty.

nrhatch - October 2, 2012

A calm reflective surface to expand the sun’s dying rays.

13. SidevieW - October 2, 2012

you have stunning views, what an evening sky!

nrhatch - October 2, 2012

Thanks for a stellar theme, Sidey! It brought to mind Enya’s . . . “Paint the Sky with Stars.”

SidevieW - October 2, 2012

ah yes, another lovely song

14. sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 2, 2012

Very very nice Nancy! Your sky reflected on the water is lovely.

nrhatch - October 2, 2012

Still waters expand the beauty of the reflected sunset/sunrise.

15. Bridgesburning Chris King - October 2, 2012

Absolutely breath taking!

nrhatch - October 2, 2012

Peace of the silent waters . . . aah!

16. bluebee - October 3, 2012

Beautiful photos and words – a great way to end the day looking at that sky!

nrhatch - October 3, 2012

Sunrise and sunset are the perfect “bookends” to a busy day. 😎

17. spilledinkguy - October 4, 2012

Beautiful, Nancy!
πŸ™‚

nrhatch - October 4, 2012

Thanks, SIG!

18. Perfecting Motherhood - October 5, 2012

Lovely pictures! We don’t get beautiful sunsets here very often. It’s usually the cliched sunset over the ocean, with no spectacular colors. I get to see nice sunrises from my house, especially in the winter (http://milkapejovic.com/2012/09/27/2013-calendar-first-pick-january-sunrise-photo/).

nrhatch - October 5, 2012

We’ve enjoyed some awe-inspiring sunsets over the years . . . but, if I go to the beach specifically to watch the sun set, the colors are not usually jaw-dropping.

I think it’s Murphy’s Law.

Perfecting Motherhood - October 5, 2012

haha, you’re probably right!

nrhatch - October 5, 2012

Damn Murphy! :mrgreen:

19. Team Oyeniyi - October 5, 2012

Those are stunning, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 5, 2012

Sunsets soothe . . . a delightful pause at the end of the day. 😎
