Sharing here just some of the MANY lighthouses decorating Michigan Avenue this summer. These were made to highlight special needs persons and to showcase their gifts of talents. Enjoy and come see! All images copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
This weekend was the Belmont-Sheffield Music (and Art) Festival in Chicago. Summertime is full of festivals in Chicago; the fun is continuous. Enjoy! Note: I had the most fun taking images of people while listening to the music; forgot to capture the musicians.
Have only painted a few times. This is first piece in over ten years. Opinions welcome. I have four more sessions at the Bonnet House courtyard, the perfect setting as seen in this piece.
I highly recommend a visit to Wynwood District including Wynwood Walls whenever you visit Miami, Florida.
Ahh…….this man in the dark trunks made this to welcome his daughter’s visit to him!
I am adding a new category to my blog this year to acknowledge a change in lifestyle, called retirement. Nature will always be my primary focus in this blog, it is a large part of what keeps me excited about life and living. Travel has entered my life, so I will occasionally share images and insights from my experiences outside of nature.
Recently music was the travel theme going from Memphis to New Orleans. Did not make it to the Gibson Factory; so need to return to Memphis again. Ahh….
My intent is to show the color, mood, and culture of areas I encounter. I want to celebrate the diversity and excitement in various environments. Both New Orleans and Memphis were FULL of vibrancy and love.
As always, I’d love to hear your insights and critique. That’s what makes blogging fun! So, in no particular order….
Nature is the original creator of designs and patterns. Some aid survival such as camouflage. Other patterns change by the moment such as these images of the ocean. Sunlight, clouds and winds are part of nature’s toolbox used to form these passing conceptions. God’s artistry inspires and challenges our limited imaginations.
Synonyms for “naturally” include obviously, logically, unsurprisingly, certainly and indeed. The flowers below are growing in the natural, tropical habitat. Unsurprisingly they flourish when allowed to live naturally.
