I have to turn my calendar page!
I really hate that. Not because time is flying, but because your art is.
Ahh, but Duke soothes me. I see that time can pass gracefully, artfully and fulfillingly.
Happy June, dear Marina!
Johnny will be 12 in a few days!
Oh, sweet boy!!!! This is also Hera’s 4th Gotcha Day, which we celebrate as her birthday! Maybe they should have a party!
I also hate turning calendar pages… and this year especially, they seem to go so fast…
The happiest June, my sweet friend
and a kiss to Johnny… Hera sends slobbery kisses too!!!!
Getting the sponge and mop! Okay Hera, kiss away!
You’ll need them!!
Thank you Dear Marina… for those wonderful well wishes for a beautiful June…. Just as I type a cloud parted and the sun shines through… Loved your photo images… May the June Sun soon rise upon your land Marina and shine it’s love and Light upon all who are emerging from their ‘Sacred Seclusion’ period of isolation…
Much love and Gratitude Marina for your beautiful friendship… ❤ ❤ ❤
‘Sacred Seclusion’… there’s always s need for that! I think you’ll see more sun now and later on, tonight a Strawberry Moon Eclipse (penumbral).
Here’s to more light, Sue and more love and Gratitude for our friendship
…and hugs to top that up! 😉😘🤗❤
What an inspiring post for this new month, Marina. Your art is gorgeous and so are the photos, and the music is perfect! Thank you, my friend. Big hugs! xoxoxo
Awww… thank you, Lauren! So very happy you enjoyed it!
Many many hugs back and love to you!
Lol 😂 I love your economy of words!
I have evolved… with time I’ve managed to add more words than ‘yes’ and ‘no’!!!!! 🤣😂🤣😂 Seriously though, I’m not great with words! 🤣🙄
Well, I meant it as a compliment. Distilliation, condensation… only the essence remains. A sign of wisdom and refinement! 👩🎓😊
…and now I am blushing! 😊
The flares go with the underworld “grapes” – great effect!
I’m ashamed to say that it was the camera doing, all I did was picked it [well, and a tad enhancement of those grapes! 😉 ]
No it’s better when it’s the camera and not extra filters… at least that’s how I see it. When we add special fx it’s more our own idea. When it just happens it’s usually a bigger idea.👣
I get what you mean… 🙂👍
Thank you for my beautiful calendar. I am celebrating the first of June with you!
I am so fortunate having my calendar hang on such friendly and loving walls! Thank YOU, Rebecca for the beautiful shelter! ❤😘❤

This is lovely, Marina! I wish you and yours a beautiful and happy month of June. Thank you for sharing your amazing artwork with us. ~xoxo
Ah, Patricia, thank YOU for your heartwarming words and wishes! A wonderful month to you and your loved ones! ❤🤗😘❤🤗😘❤
Haha Gandalf! I can’t decide which photo I like better…with or without the flare. With is kind of magical…but without, though filtered, has a pure majesty. Perhaps you couldn’t decide either and posted both 😉
Gandalf is always there to greet the sun! 😉 I was going to post the last one but then I thought the colored flares are fun, so… Happy you enjoyed both! 🤗😘
I’m so delighted to turn another page of your beautiful calendar and grateful to have survived this year thus far with such a creative and compassionate blogging community. These sunrise photos are gorgeous and inspire hope 🤗😘🤗😘
Ah, my kind friend… I’m grateful for the same things. You bring sunshine to these pages and hope to me, to carry on. Thank you, Mary Jo. Have a wonderful June! 😘🤗
Beautiful watercolor, and I feel completely oriented to the coming month.
Ah, thank you, my friend! …birth month maybe?… 😉
You’re welcome. For me, January.
…just speculated on “completely oriented” 😉 🙂
Doesn’t time fly?
Oh, it does! Would you believe we’re already halfway in 2020?!!!!!
Happy June!! My birthday month, hahaha 🧚🏻♀️
Ah… Happy Birth Month, Saania!!!!!! 🌻
