It was absolutely breathtaking and the photo doesn't even do it justice. The sky was on fire! It was the result of the sunset reflecting on the clouds of course, but I've never quite seen effect like this. It was special enough to coax other people out of their houses too and shoot pictures of it.
Somewhere along the week I was playing in my heart journal and just felt like I had to put that scene on paper by painting it. So I took out the above photograph and my watercolor paints and started brushing on reds and oranges and yellows. (Reds and oranges and yellows, oh my ;-) )
Nature does it better than me of course, but I think I captured the atmosphere I was going for just the same.
Sometimes everyday life suprises you with something so special. I just love that!
