Wowser, this was challenging!
I love these vintage billiard balls that I got last weekend, but I think I'll wait a while before trying to paint them again. :)

The last long light of day, languidly lounging over lawns. Love it.
And then of course, that yellow bug. Yum.

I kinda like this one. :)
(I can't usually say that right after finishing. Need a little absence to make my heart fonder. :)  )

Point Wilson Light is in Fort Worden State Park near Port Townsend, Washington, roughly sixty miles southwest of majestic Mt. Baker.

It was just one of a zillion lovely sights on our anniversary weekend trip last June. 
Hmm, I wonder where we should go this year... :)

249. Evening Graze

On one of our recent very summery evenings, I drove around the dike-lands that skirt the Columbia River in our area of Oregon. Being a flatlander/farmer's daughter, the straight-ish gravel roads and uber-green pastures remind me very much of summers in Minnesota. The sun was low, the air was warm, the shadows were delicious. In the very distance, the hills of Washington state made a dusky backdrop, rising steeply from the Columbia River.
