How Did it Get So Late So Soon?


Do-Something-Everyday, Sept 1, 2016

Linked to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eve and Kristin for hosting.

It is hard to believe that it is September already! At this time of the year, I am always reminded of Dr. Suess's quote:

"How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's noon. December is here before it's  June. My goodness how time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"

Couple of days ago, I reopened my Etsy shop after closing it for a month. I took this time to not only create new art but also to make them into prints to sell at my Etsy shop. The prints are done using Epson's ultrachrome pigments and Radiant white watercolor paper. I am very pleased with the quality of the prints. Here are a few samples.









Below are some photos of the Passaic river that flows nearby. The 80 miles (130 km) long river meanders through northern New Jersey before emptying into Newark Bay harbor. The originating point of the river is about 30 miles from my town and therefore the river is a fairly thin here. It is pretty big near the harbor.







Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Your prints are stunning. I wish you many sales in your shop! I love the splashes of colors behind the main subjects too.
    That final photo took my breath away! The shiny color of the dragon fly on the green leaf is beautiful.

  12. The older I get, the shorter the days/months/years. . . at least it seems like that. Your prints are dynamic, I love them. Blessings, Janet
