Enjoying our stormy weather out here in the Moapa Valley, Nevada. It really isn’t supposed to snow in the desert, however, the last few days have brought just that to our region. We are also preparing for more winter storms rolling in later this week. It is such a refreshing break to breath clean crisp air, enjoy the storm clouds, rain, hail and fresh wet earth.
Taking those moments whenever I can to capture a few photos throughout my travels. Las Vegas is about a 45 minute drive from my Moapa Mesa. After living in various locations around the city of Las Vegas for over 20 years, this rural PA country girl, is Very Happy to make “quick” visits into “Sin City”! I do LOVE many things about the city and try to capture those “thoughts” with my photographs.
My Moms poems were selected for the “Artists and Poets” All Media Themed Art Exhibition & Competition, April 1, 2019 to May 4, 2019 at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery in Mesquite, Nevada!!!!!She hasn’t put her Magical words on paper for MANY years! It was AWESOME that she inspired to be a part of this Exhibition.
I DID make it to the Gallery in time to select BOTH of her poems to create works of art for the show!!!!!! Now comes my inspired challenge, to take these two AMAZING poems and transform them into an image on canvass.
Blessed to be doing this one with Mom. Thankfully I have a some time to process and create. Of course I will post the photos of the finished works.
Have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!
