A Beautiful Sky

Knight of Wands Upright - A lover of action, this is the card of someone who has a well-liked, energetic, confident, but sometimes unpredictable nature. He has an engaging temperament and his actions sometimes a little swift do tend to make sense with hindsight.

Two of Cups Upright - Affection, love, the beginnings of a new romance, partnership or friendship. Emotional affinity, sympathy, joyous harmony, the reconciliation of opposites in mutual trust. Resolved differences.

Ace of Wands Ill Dignified or Reversed - Bareness, impotence, sterility, avarice, greed. An over confidence that ends in tears. In a woman's spread this card may indicate trouble with men.

The sky was absolutely beautiful yesterday at sunset. This photo just doesn't do it any justice at all. The entire sky was shades of pink and purple. It was so distracting while I was driving and I couldn't help but wonder if anyone else was noticing it. I just pulled over and took a picture.

New Journal Page

I love flowers of all kinds. It is everything about them, the color, the smell, the shape. They are a beauty that nothing synthetic could ever duplicate. I wanted to emphasize the need to pay attention to the small things and take your time to appreciate the beautiful things all around you. Simple is lovely.

Little Bird at my Window Art Journal Page

My friend Shannon and I were cleaning my apartment, when a bird randomly came up to my window and knocked on it, then stayed for a moment. I believe in signs and I would like to know what he had to tell us.

I have been painting in oils for many years now, and really have only used watercolors for my journal. However, Shannon has been using watercolors a lot lately and I figured that I would give them a try. So here is my tree:
