Favorite Part of the Day

Right now I am in the process of creating submissions for teaching at a couple of painting conventions for next year so there isn't much I can share right now. I am working on a commission piece that I will be able to share next week so check back then. These are some photos from my back yard from this morning.

There is a certain time on a sunny morning that is special. The sun slants through the trees at a certain angle and light catches the caladiums and surrounding greenery making everything glow. If there is no wind, the pool acts like a cool blue reflecting pool and doubles the effect. It is a quiet, peaceful time and usually the only sounds are the birds singing and an occasional squirrel chattering away. This short interlude doesn't last long... soon the sun will shift position and some of the magic is lost. Until tomorrow morning...

What part of the day is your favorite?
