Sky Dreaming Australia

Breathtaking, as the last light is fading into darkness  a magic fills the sky.  A sense of serenity and wonder perfume the air as that last sliver of sun slips below the Indian Ocean.  I’m loving that vibrancy of scarlet with the deep velvet black contrasts of the crane shapes swinging gently on the evening breeze!

I didn’t have to travel far to capture the light on these.  One was right outside my house,  3 were 20 minutes away and Sun Sliver in Scarlet at Geraldton  (above) was only an afternoon drive.


Just Clouds painted by the fading sun…. makes me dream of picking up a brush and painting a sky  that would look just as good as the Creator did.    We all have our dreams!

The waters edge still  and dark,  looks ominous. A bit foreboding. But as I  look beyond the still and dark waters edge I can see the horizon’s promise of tomorrow’s light.   A lovely promise on the horizon.

Oh this is full of wonderful negative spaces, I fell in love with the design of this image. It has a magical feel of hobbits, elves,  and you can almost expect “Gollum”  or  Smeagol  to come creeping  out of these woods. ….nearly but for the palms in the back.

Rolling and encompassing the encirclement of clouds didn’t make me feel like they were looming or foreboding at all. But had me enchanted with their swirling movements and light and dark patterns that kept changing  every 15 seconds!

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  2. Hello Debi again. You has asked me what i had done in paintings etc? Yes, Our city had a program called Art Fundamentals in the 1990’sat our Local College. I was introduces to basic colour, mixing, live model drawing, basic drawing, mostly . Quick sketch was in black and white.. Mostly Acrylic still life, here and there!! Most of those teachers have left the area, but I loved the practice of ” art” learning and doing. ” I am most interested in your posts, and ideas. ” Living and Learning” , : Will keep you posted! Thank you Joanne Wighton

    1. Thank you Laura!! each, meant something a bit different and went beyond pretty. Pretty will always be done better, by someone else.
      But, being different, infusing emotion & breathing life spirit in an image can override technical perfection. imho. 🙂
