"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."   Hebrews 11:1 This week I have been "looking up" and keeping mine.   Hope all of you are as well. Have a blessed week! Hugs Debbie

A Summer Landscape

Pastel Painting The view from our hilltop inspired me a few evenings ago to paint this summer landscape. It is a familiar scene that never fails to move me.   Often there will be cattle grazing on the hillside or deer in the meadow. In the sky there may be a Red-Tailed Hawk on the wing. Moth Hummingbird Moths and butterflies flutter to the wildflowers that grow there. For sure and for certain it is a place that is close to my heart. Do you have a special spot that inspires you to paint,  take a photo, or write a poem?    If so I hope you will share. Have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie

"Singing in the Rain"

This weekend brought us some much needed rain.  To celebrate I am sharing this link to the old song performed by Gene Kelly... "Singing in the Rain"... The sunflowers thought they would join in  as well as the Rose of Sharon and Queen Anne's Lace. Think I will too! Hope everyone has a lovely week. Hugs Debbie
