A paddle in a cooling rock pool

I was up at 5.30 this morning
woken by a huge orangish red sun
bathing everything in golden light

my mosaic today is inspired by seaside blues
golden light, sunshine yellow and cheerful orange

it's so hot, hot, hot already
I want to go down to the beach
and paddle in a cooling rock pool

with thanks to my flickr friends and faves for sharing their photos
and to special friend Julie for her fab fishes

I wish you a happy summertime week
seaside blues, happy orange and sunshine yellow
creative wishes

summer stuff

One doesn't normally think of orange as a sea colour but this mosaic beautifully shows how this colour is most definitively a sea colour too.

You're the second person today that has told me they have the 'flu.
Hope you make a good speedy recovery.

Just happened upon your beautiful blog and I look forward to following your textile work/play. I feel like I've been able to go to an art exhibit today thanks to your photos. Now, I'll go stick my head in the freezer as it's around 100 F. in Tunisia today.
best, nadia
