Painting a Walk

My world in winter can be damp and gray and dank and cold.  Yesterday it rained all day.  Today the fog hangs thick and close in the yard.  I took a neighborhood walk two days ago and today I spend the hours ignoring the outside and re-painted what I saw digitally to create my own little fairy land.  What do  you think?


I had to trespass on a vacant lot to get this photo of a nearby marsh above.


I made it into a blurry painting because it was already a little blurry.


This was a photo of ornamental grasses planted outside a nearby millionaires lovely, but all too often vacant, home.

Wow! Those are gorgeous! The top one is my favorite but they are all so beautiful.

It has been gray for days here. I can't remember the last time we saw the sun.

What a great idea to colour in the grey and dark. I must try that with some of my own photos!

Just the way to brighten up a gray walk!

The gray hasn't settled in here quite yet, but it's coming. After several days of it, i can understand the craving to paint your world brighter.
