A Palette of Luminous Blues


Seeing this kind of light reflecting in the water makes me long to be an artist.  



It's the kind of light that feeds an artist's obsession. 




It is easy to find little snippets of serenity to use as the subject of a beautiful painting.    

                                                  
      

 Pretty pink against a backdrop of blue is always lovely too.   




Even the blueberries are perfectly timed to reflect the light of August.  




There seems to be an endless supply of subject matter everywhere you look.  




But this one of the sailboat masts reflecting in the water is one of my personal favorites.  



I can imagine how beautiful it would look in brush strokes on canvas.  So tell me because I am curious, which one of these could you easily envision as a painting?

I LOVE every photo and every word. The reflections (both mental and visual), are fantastic, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your close-up of the blueberries. It just takes my breath away.

Sending love Downeast,

The last one would be
my first choice ~ very
Monet, I think!

Hope you've enjoyed
the light all summer long.

The days are getting
shorter, already. Can't
even think about the
coming winter, yet!!!

First of all, I think your photos show you to be an artist. For a painting the first or last photos, with the sailboats and reflections on the water.
