The full moon with a halo effect around it. It comes out so badly on my camera, but you can see the colours-the icy blue and an orangey tinge.
Just to the right of the boat is an orange buoy. The same orange as the ball below.
I used the ball as the sun in this photo shop collage. The skeleton is a photo hanging from one of my shelves, and the cat is from a Steinlen picture on a postcard from Anairam.

A painting from ages ago, played with the other night. Are heads spheres? What is an oval sphere called? Is it an ovoid? Yes I think it is! The process of talking to myself has worked again! Linda at work is always talking to herself, and when I answer her she says so. She says that she gets the answers she wants to hear from herself!

We are off on our little holiday tomorrow. I will be back with news of it on Tuesday!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Love all your creations. Saw that same moon this morning sinking-- sinking into an oncoming storm. Have a lovely holiday!

And talking to oneself is the only way to be sure there is a listener who cares--even when you don't know the answer.

I love Steinlen! I have that exact cat in my kitchen here (it's a popular picture, isn't it?), I have another Steinlen pic with a couple of dogs and cats and a girl at a vet's office.

I just put a full moon in the night at the top of my blog today. (I've changed the whole look at "Keepsakes").

I hope you have a fantastic little trip to The Eternal City!

Oh! Little holiday!! I love the sound of that! Love your moon - the sky looks a little chilly though - I heard there were blizzards in Scotland!

Love all the that you've been playing around with here, Sarah. Interesting question about the heads as spheres... I'm not sure either! Must go Google ;o) Hope you're having a lovely holiday... enjoy! ((HUGS))

When I scrolled down and your moon image popped up, it popped in my eyes like a tiny explosion. It was wonderful!
