Clear and Cold

I painted at the new house all afternoon today, then drove the 9 miles home as the sun went down. The sky was a delicate pink when I left and by the time I got home the sky had gone from pink to lavender to blue, blue velvet. All along the way I kept noticing the beautiful, stark tree silhouettes against the changing sky. And the moon—oh that moon!

  2. The moon was so bright through the skylight last night I woke up twice thinking someone turned on a light. It was clear and lovely though.
    Thanks for the great post yesterday.

  3. Beautiful. Did you see Steph's moon on 3191. Both gorgeous. I didn't even know there was a full moon!

  4. Lovely post, Terry. When I lived in the country I was always aware of what phase the moon was in, and especially when it was full. Here in the city, it's so easy to lose track.

  5. I thought is was interesting that you said, "...new house all afternoon today, then drove the 9 miles home..."
    The new place isn't "home" yet.
