I’m really not a morning person on my day off, so when I stepped out the door to walk my doggie for a morning piddle, my eyes opened up real wide when I saw this beautiful sky. Suddenly, I was AWAKE and excited to paint!
I ran in the house, threw doggie a treat, and grabbed my watercolors. I had to run, because this type of sky (my favorite btw), doesn’t last long. The forecast was calling for rain and most of the clouds in the sky were a dark blue. The sunlight shining through a few small openings was a brilliant deep orange, a pure radiant orange. Oh what a beautiful “hold your breath” kind of moment! Before my sketch was finished, the orange in the sky was gone. It only lasted a few minutes.
What a great way to start your day, with a quick sketch of such an amazing sky. If you ever get a chance, don’t wait too long or it may just disappear.
P.S. My scripture verse is supposed to be Job 37:16 not 38:16.
