Hi all -
I am not writing about art tonight.
I drove around town a couple of days ago for about an hour
and took pictures of anything that struck my fancy.
I have been mentally kind of under the weather since January
and I just needed some simple (and beautiful) things to life my spirits.
Flowers will do it every time.
I'm making them extra large because that's how I saw them.
Pear cactus in my neighborhood
Even the spent blossoms are interesting.
The yellow is the old stem that held the flower.
a yard full on Coreopsis near the Rio Grande Nature Center
beautiful hollyhocks near Old Town
and the metal mariachis - so cool!
If they don't put you in a good mood, then I don't know what does!
Back to art tomorrow...
