Our wonderful Norma, The Fairy Yellow Bug Queen, is the mastermind behind the Drawing Challenge this time, with 'crystal'.
One of our more prominent landmarks in the area is called Crystal Mountain.
Crystal Mountain reflects beautifully in Blind Slough, right above the rapids. On Thursday after work, we encountered a nice flock of trumpeter swans gliding around on those glassy waters.
On Friday, we took the afternoon off to enjoy a rare crystal clear day for a winter picnic out at Green's Camp.
The Sailor built us a great beach fire. Flossy helped, of course.
The sun set was spectacular.
We lingered until the stars started to come out.
Later, in my sketch book, this drawing appeared:
I advise heading over to The Fairy Yellow Bug Queen's lovely place for links to other wonderful artists' interpretation of this theme.
