Inspiration

The beauty of nature always inspires me. These pictures were taken from my side deck last night around 6PM. It had rained all day and the sun peaked through the rain clouds, promising a sunnier day tomorrow.





Welcome Home,
Penny

When I was in high school, a friend of mine who is an artist painted a scene very similar to this. When I saw your photographs, they immediately reminded me of that painting. Lovely!
