Moody Skies

"Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself."
Hermann Hesse

Moody skies this morning and rain today. I had to get out early this morning to take a quick walk and to catch some images of the dramatic sky. The trees stand out like silhouettes against the various shades of gray. These kinds of days always remind me of growing up in the Pacific Northwest where this is an all too often weather pattern. I'm happy that I live in a mostly sunny area now so these days can be appreciated a little more. Since yesterday was a bit of a difficult day, today is a day for recharging and nurturing.

I used my new Gray Linen texture (just below) on this one. I love the subtle paint spatters that show through on the sky.

Have a beautiful day!
