After the rain ...

After a warmish day of heavy rain and thunderstorms today, I glanced out the back door just in time to see the sun peeking through the clouds just above the horizon, right before setting. Hallelujah!

So I pulled on my boots, grabbed my camera and headed out into the glorious twilight. 

The whole pasture was bathed in a pink glow.

If you squint and use your imagination, you can just make out Roadie having a sloshy romp after a day of being cooped up inside, coloring and watching Animal Planet.

He wasn’t really coloring. I just wanted to see if you were paying attention. 

He was watching Animal Planet, though.

Gorgeous shots! I love how clean the air is after a good washing rain. Would love to see you paint one of these…. with your fabulous sense of colors, I know it would be an incredible painting.

Merry Christmas! And thank you for sharing your wonderful world on the blog.

Hi Kathy -- thanks for following my blog!
One of my goals for my art is to point to God’s glory in creation … noticing cool moments like this and then acting on them is one of my greatest joys. Glad you like it!

Thanks bunches, Anonymous, whoever you are! :)
We are TOTALLY on the same page; Today I'm working on a large painting of one of these sunset pics … I just couldn’t help it.

And Merry Christmas right back to you and your family!
