If you live in Terciera, you have the promise of rainbows. An almost-daily dose of rainbows, you might think, would diminish their uniqueness and beauty. Not so for me. Their beauty never fades, their miraculousness and variety never diminish. They are a blessing, a reminder of the daily tender mercies the Lord freely gives.

Maybe I don't get out as much as I should, but I have never seen these flowers before moving to the Azores. From a distance it's one beautiful flower. But up close... just amazing. I couldn't help but whip out the camera. Taking time to stop and smell the flowers was worth it! :)

On the top of an island in a far-off place is a beautiful clear lake surrounded by green, green forests, colorful hydrangeas, and filled with ducks and lily pads. The trees, stumps, and forest floor are all coated in moss due to the fact that it is usually "up in the clouds". This place is so quiet and serene, it is the perfect 'Happy Place' where I can enjoy my family, play with my camera, or just sit and think. I'm not the only one who thinks so...

One of the things I love about the Azores is the style of their homes, buildings, and city streets. They are old, mature, and uniquely beautiful. It is refreshing how the people here take pride in their towns and homes. The structures are repainted yearly, getting ready for the time of the festivals. Those that have been abandoned are very apparent and photographic in their own right.

I LOVE ART in its many, many forms. I find joy in the small, simple, and quiet moments of life. I have started this blog to post my works of art, be it painted, chalked, photographed, penciled...well, you get the idea. I am a mother of five boys and keep very busy, but this is my way of keeping up with my art in whatever form it may take. I feel that I have had a talent given to me, but I fail to use that talent as I should. It haunts me every night as I go to sleep and see works of art created in my mind that never come to pass. I have allowed these moments of joy to pass by me without recording any of them. This void must be filled! Thanks for allowing me to share.
