Must Be the Finn in Me

I once read that if you have trouble putting colors together, look to nature. The combinations that occur in the wild can be inspirational. One of my favorite pairings is blue and white, which is a good thing considering I am surrounded by hoary trees silhouetted against an azure sky.


I snapped a couple pictures with my cell phone, 
then applied a filter in my photo software to give them a dry brush look.


Why do I bother to hang pictures on the walls when I can look out the window at nature's artwork?



Dinner last night: roasted chicken, lettuce wedge with bleu cheese and tomatoes
