realization 3 and dusk

8x8 Pastel and watercolor on Uart
Write the end of the story before you finish the book.

Does that make sense?
Richard McKinley once told me that I need to keep that in mind when I am working. In other words, you must have a vision, know where you are going or you will never get there. I think I am finally starting to see and feel that.
Last night I headed to my next door soccer field at sunset. I have been studying the light at dusk. Night after night, I go there and look. I would say the colors out loud. I dreamed it Tuesday night. The vision was there. The last chapter was written. So when I was standing there and dusk arrived like a veil over the sky. I was ready.

Thanks Richard!

HI B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You were definitely ready ... really gorgeous!
The combination of colors as the sky transitions from the darkening sky down to all the pinks and golds shining through the trees and then to the deep blues and greens in the trees. A great chapter and a happy ending.

I love these realizations. Isn't it crazy how we can hear something for so long and then finally, we HEAR it?

Hey PB!!!!
Thanks for noticing all the action.I think sometimes I just don't take enough time to relate long enough when I am outdoors. Learning...always learning.-b

Hi Donna! Thank you!

Hi Sam, I hope you are well.I have been thinking about you. How is your Mom doing? Which "book" of mine are you reading on the big screen? -Loriann

Hi Karen....sometimes it's that you hear it and feel it on completely different levels as the journey progresses. Don't you think?

I should have said "story". This pastel tells a bedtime story told at dusk for sweet dreams.
