Have you ever seen a more beautiful low tide? This is my friend's back yard.

I found you through Tom (digitalscenic).

Great site. Your photographs are so expansive and glorious. Living in the city, one can forget just how far the horizon stretches.

I love your pastels. It was one of my favorite mediums back in the day. Conte was my favorite, but I rarely drag out my art box anymore. Sad how easily life gets in the way of art. Thanks for reminding me that art and life are one.

Thank you for your compliments. I checked out your site, and feel like you should try to give yourself 2 hours a week to paint. If you could find only 2 hours, you would feel like you were back doing what you love.

I really like your photos, too. They are very contemplative and feel good.

I'm with you on the job thing. Last year I worked at a photo developing lab and loved it, even though the pay was low. I was developing photos and playing with Photoshop and couldn't have been happier. That's what's important, isn't it?

True, true. Life is, to a large degree, compromise. We find happiness and success in those things we actually achieve in life, even if they don't replicate our original visions. I don't mean that we settle, we just learn that our visions are, like us, dynamic.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. Hope you visit again.

Terrific scene. I would love to have that view in my backyard. Sigh...

Thanks so much for your kind comment on my photoblog on BlogExplosion. :-)
