Painting of the Day- Burning Bush

Here is the lesson in "always have your sketchbook handy". A few weeks ago I went to the temple with some of my New England blogging lady friends. When we arrived my baby was asleep, so I stayed int he car with him. I didn't even think to bring a book to read (even though I have 3 unread on my nightstand) or my seminary lessons to plan (although I did read someons scriptures in the back of the lewis-mobile). I did however have my trusty sketchbook. This painting came to me as I looked at the bushes lining the sideway at the Boston Temple- it's not done yet, but I love the red leaves.

Stop it!!! THIS, this very painting, is my ALL TIME favorite (besides the one of Jane) but seriously, this is AMAZING!
I haven't even read what you had to say, I saw the painting, that was enough.
Ok. Back to read your words (and look at the masterpiece again) ;)
Beautiful work!

ok, one more thing. Glad the Lewis mobile had scriptures for your reading pleasure. Had you looked around you probably could have found a few fries, perhaps a munchin from Dunkins D's. Who knows. :)
