Only Reflections

Looking at the stream in the sunlight
only seeing the water,
the ripples caused by the wind.
A brief moment.

A painting done in light and movement.
Impressionism.

Oh my goodness Sherry,

I was going to say Monet, before I finished reading your rumination.

This is very artful and very beautiful. It offers a sense of peace, through those gentle ripples.

Your ripples touch so many. Thank you.

Much love,

Dear, Dear Sprite,
Thank you. You are so kind. My husband really liked the reflections in the small river we walked by. On the bridge I was too short to see over the railings. All I could see were the reflections. They impressed me. I was thinking Monet too! I was thinking how he might have "seen" in the reflections of a small, slow moving river. The camera saw.
You are very wonderful. Knowing the ripples...we never know when we will influence another. I hope my ripples touch others in a graceful way. Yours touch me with joy.
Thank you, Sprite.
Much love,
Sherry

Dear Chris,
I bet relflections inspired Monet!
I am not a painter but if I was I would paint like this.
I paint with my camera I guess.
Thanks!
I am not creating very much these days. Just too hot.
Off to walk.
Hugs and ripples,
Sherry

Evidently I'm not the first to say it, but I thought these looked like Monet paintings. Gorgeous photos!

Dear Karen,
Thank you. I did think these came out in the Monet style. I have not posted any of the "artsy" things I have done lately. Mostly I am organizing and getting my house and gardens ready for winter.
My husband thinks everything I do is "artsy" but cleaning never feels very creative!

I was just looking at the Wabash River on our walk this a.m. and I was seeing the reflections of the trees.

I like these picures.

Dear Lisa,
I love reflections. Whenever I am around water I stand and just gaze.
Thank you,
Sherry
