          • I WAS AT THE SCHOOL WHERE I VOLUNTEER MOST OF THE DAY .,…
            THAT WAS GOOD .
            JUST RECOVERING FROM A LITTLE STOMACH BUG AND TRYING TO CHANGE BROWZERS ON THIS COMPUTER TO HAVE MORE ACCESS – LIKE UNIVERSAL ACCESS . CHANGING FONT SIZES ..ECT ,…. IT’S A BIT HARD SOMETIMES ….
            I WON’T LIE – SOMETIMES I WONDER WHY I AM EVEN TRYING ….
            YOU HIT A NERVE BUT THAT’S OKAY . I CAN’T BE HAPPY AND POSITIVE ALL THE TIME RIGHT ?
            IT JUST TAKES ME A LONG TIME TO SEE THINGS THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE ……

            BUT NO MATTER WHAT
            THIS IS THE WAY IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE !
            YOU KNOW ?
            CAN’T FIGHT THE WAY I AM MADE ….
            XX
            THX FOR ASKING ………
            LOVE XO BIG TIME XO

            • I didn’t know you had been sick. I hope your on the mend now.
              Making computer changes can be very time consuming at time, not to mention aggravating.

              Why your trying. I think you know why. You’re just having an off day. Sometimes I feel that way too, but it does pass. The heart knows, what our minds cannot always understand, but we feel it.
              I hit a nerve. Oh my, I hope I didn’t say anything out of line….I love ya, Cat!
              Sometime we just have to let our hearts search and wait. It will gel together on another day…you’ll see.
              You’re right where you are suppose to be today, Cat! And your caring and loving heart is still felt.
              You be good to yourself, and trust God with all of your heart, and He will direct your path.

              I’m here if you need me, Hon.

              🙂
              SO THANK YOU XOXOXO

            • I’m so glad you are feeling better today. I don’t like my Cat to not feel like herself. We all get days when we feel a bit different than our norm, but it give us an opportunity to grow more.
              You are like a spring flower, misted with dew, opening up to greet the morning sun, reaching for your maker.
              You have a restful day doing all the things that you love most…be good to you!
              I love ya!

              THERE IS A LITTLE PATH OF GRACE ——— IT GOES RIGHT INTO YOUR HEART —- AND STAYS ………….
              I FORGET TO ASK FOR HELP SOMETIMES !!!!!
              SOMETIMES I THINK I CAN DO EVERYTHING
              WHICH IS TOTALLY STUPID OF ME ……
              THERE ARE LIMITATIONS TO WHAT I CAN AND CANNOT DO …..
              SOMETIMES IT’S OK TO FACE THAT IN THE FACE AND SAY …… THANK YOU !

              ON ANYTHING
              JUST PUTTING MYSELF IN CHECK …

              LOVE XO

            • I think we all forget to ask for help at times. I don’t really think most of us forget on purpose though. We just do our best to work our way through things…Sometimes, that is the only way.
              I have to put myself in check at times too.
              Please don’t call yourself stupid. You are not stupid. Speaking such things out loud or on paper like that about yourself is a claim. Claim enough times and your subconscious will believe it. Say nice things about yourself…please.
              I know your not ever going to give up…you’re too strong for that road. Your a winner with a beautiful heart, and have much to offer.

              Stay bless, Cat

  1. Love the shadows, Deb. Did it work? Did you get to sleep soon after? 🙂 That’s a cool way to send your mind the message that it’s time to go to bed. Paint the sun going down 🙂

    • Yes it did. Once I decided I did all I was going to do to it. I turned off the laptop, the night light, went to bed and fell asleep quickly.
      Thank you, Kathryn!
      Hugs ♥ xx

  2. This would make a perfect header for your Space
    and what a wondrously fine painting it is too Deb 🙂

    Have a lovely evening now 🙂

    • Really, I had not thought about that till you mentioned it. I just may have to give that a try.
      I’m glad you like this one, Andro. Thank you for stopping in to visit and comment.
      Do have a wicked night, my dark fine friend.
      Hugs ♥ XXx

    • I love them too, and the night I painted it, I really wanted myself to set for the night…it finally came.
      Thanks for your lovely comment, Lauren!
      Hugs ♥ xx

      • Well, your paintings are always beautiful and that’s one talent that I’ve never had. When I was younger, I used to draw a lot, but that passion didn’t last. Writing took over and I don’t go by any rules, either…I just write! 🙂 ♥

      • Rule smools. When it comes to art, poetry, prose, muse, writing, or whatever else there is that one can create. I believe we are best to do it our own way, not the way some one thinks it ought to be done. It just wouldn’t be us behind the work.
        Artwork was likely a doorway to your writing, Lauren. One door seem to lead to another to me.
        I love ya,
        Hugs ♥ xx

    • One of my favorite times too, I also love the twilight, but am not always up that early to enjoy it.
      I’m glad you like it, Val. and thank you for commenting!
      Hugs ♥ xx

  3. That is another really nice painting. And it looks like a very hot night. I think I can see steam coming off the water.

  4. I love it 🙂 the colors just are so beautiful. Something with the combo. of colors is just so tranquil and peaceful to me. I hope you got to sleep after 🙂 love and hugs ♥

    • I’m so glad you like it, Autumn! I did fall asleep right after I was done with it….slept like a baby.
      Thanks Autumn!
      Hugs ♥ xx

  5. I love the movement in this one. Reminds me of the tide. Very beautiful painting of the scene, Deb. The colors are premium! {HUGZ} Red. xxx

  6. Beautiful painting Deb..the fury of summer sky …and yet so much in peace Oh you are so gifted and if this is what you paint cos you were feeling restless Deb…
    loved it 🙂
    Hugs n love 🙂

    • I was restless for sure. What I really wanted to do was sleep, but thought I would paint since I couldn’t. I’m really happy you like it!
      Thank you for the lovely comment, Soma!
      Love and Hugs ♥ xx

  7. What a wonderful and almost surreal landscape Deb. Warm and quiet. I hope you’ve slept as a rose after you’ve made it. 🙂

    • I did sleep well once I went back to bed…It was a very peace sleep.
      I’m glad you like it, Hanne!…thank you!
      Hugs ♥ xx

  8. Beautiful! It’s a great feeling to get the urge to create so you just do. I have no room to paint at the moment so my urge goes unfulfilled. 😦

    • Good Morning, Stuart. Thank you for dropping in today!. you are welcome here anytime!
      I understand what you mean about space. We have been on vacation and I’m currently in a 5th wheel (limited space)
      Thanks Stuart, I’m glad you like it!
      Hugs ♥ xx

    • Thank you very much, MC! I’m also glad you stopped by. I went to your space yesterday, but it has gone private.
      Thank you for the beautiful comment!
      Hugs ♥ xx

      • You can come in… there’s some button you can click and it sends me an email. It should give that option anyway… You’re welcome!

        If you like, email me @ the address you see in my comment and I’ll send you an invitation. 🙂

        • I’ve tried, but it doesn’t behave like most private blogs on my end of things. It take me to my dashboard, even when I type in your blog address…weird. I sent you and email as you mentioned.
          Thanks, MC!
          Hugs ♥ xx

    • I was trying to do a painting that would help get me sleepy…it worked. I’m very please that you like it, Bo!
      Thanks for stopping in today…it’s always a pleasure!
      Hugs ♥ xx

  9. Very beautiful painting Debbie! I wish I was near wherever you are so I could beg to be your apprentice and learn the secrets of creating such works. Stay blessed friend

    • Wow, what a lovely thought to share with me! But you would not have to beg me, Scott. If you lived nearby I would just call you to let you know I was going to paint and offer if you wanted to watch. But I’d warn you…I make lots of mistakes, but that’s the learning part.
      Thank you for such a lovely compliment! And you stay blessed too!
      Hugs ♥ xox

      • Yes, I always believed we learn as much from mistakes as we learn from successes, for sure.
        Ok, I can’t resist asking. Can I use this one on the FB page now? I’ll of course have your info there. Thanks!

        • I know, I’ve got so if I don’t make a mistake that I didn’t learn anything. But trust me…I always make them.
          Certainly Scott, I would be honored if you used it on your page. Let me know when it’s up, I want to see how it looks.
          Hugs ♥ xx

        • It looks good up there on your FB page, Scott. Thank you very much and thank you for the link.
          It drives me a little nuts when you do that and I c’t say something on your FB page unless I reactivate. I’m still just not sure if I want to use it again.
          But I can certainly let you know here!…thank you again, I’m honored and humbled.
          Love ♥ Hugs ♥ xx

    • Yes I did…I slept like a baby, sweet and sound.
      Thank you for the comment about my painting, Angie!
      Hugs, xx

  10. Wow! That warm atmosphere is brilliantly rendered! SO nice!
    It’s like you were able to freeze that one second when you recognize the ‘perfect light’ and then, in a flash, it’s gone!
    Another one of my favorites, Deb! Absolutely fantastic!
    🙂

    • Aw, you leave the nicest comments, Bob…thank you for that!
      I’m really glad you like this one and so many others.
      Hugs, xx

    • I’m so glad you like it. Though God himself does it best. I wanted to try to re-create His beauty!
      Thanks Sue!
      Hugs, xx

  11. Wauw…..awesome sunset painting and the new background is amazing Deb, just draws you in.

    Thank you for passing by hun…oooh yes we had a marvelous day and one to remember.
    Hope you are well…enjoying your week and sleeping better. Well at least you make good with those
    lose sleepless hours 🙂
    Big hug Traceyxx

    • So glad to hear that you had a wonderful celebration!!
      Anytime, Tracy…just wish you’d post more often.
      Doing well, a bit damp out today, but if I’d go to the beach I would notice…lol
      If I ever can’t sleep I have to do something…usually paint. I did fall asleep right after I finished painting…like a baby.
      Thanks for the visit and comments today, Tracy!
      Hugs xx

  12. Really pretty n vibrant colors… i indulge in some similar activity when i cant fall asleep, as well. I started using acrylic recently.

    • Yes, I was just over there checking out your gallery…very nice!
      Thank you for the comment on my painting. Have a nice day!
      Hugs xx
