Weeks of rain in NYC. Following a thunder clapping, sky blackening, torrential downpour last night, the sky turned golden and then hot pink. Pictured above is an unretouched shot of the beautiful moment.
I was lucky enough to have recently met Sarah Fishburn. Sarah and some of her family are on a whirlwind road trip all over the United States. We spent an afternoon together wandering around NYC. Turns out Sarah is as warm, friendly, and humorous as she is talented, creative, and generous. And what a great family too! Sarah wanted me to send a shout out to everybody and let you know that she will be home and back to blogging very soon!
If you liked the journal pages of Barron Storey that I recently highlighted here, head over to Kelly Kilmer's blog to learn a lot more about Barron, his art, and his publications. Thanks for all the info Kelly!
A long overdue thank you to Lynn from Getting my Feet Wet who passed along the Uplifting Blogger Award to me a while back. Thanks Lynn!
And a more timely thank you also goes out to Pat from Artfully Ooglebloops for passing the Kreativ Blogger award on to The Altered Page.
