Interesting that this title came to me so quickly, while I had to think about the title of the last post for quite a sometime. I guess I came up with this title because of the feelings and emotions that come over me when I see such beauty in nature. It helps me say yes to the rest of the day.

I caught this sunset last winter in Santa Fe coming out of the shopping center. Everyone on the street was looking up at the mountain in awe. It had just stopped snowing but there was still a lot of moisture in the air. As the sun broke through the clouds it illuminated the peak of the mountains painting it the most wonderful golden color. I don't think that I got the colors right for what it actually looked like but I am happy with this encaustic. I am going to give this another try or two. It is a good memory to dwell on and I love working with the hot wax that lends itself so well to the dreamy skies or New Mexico.
