thankful snapshots from lately...

Thankful for the summer sky. //  These shots were both taken on the same day, one in the morning, one in the evening. There is just something so special about sitting outside & looking up into the heavens... and I am convinced that the Colorado sky is the best!  :)
Thankful for light blue nail polish & watermelon.  //  I have been eating a lot of watermelon this summer!
Thankful for white adirondack chairs.  //  Over the last few weeks I have worked on painting a couple of adirondack chairs white. Getting the paint in between all of the wood was harder than I thought & they required two coats, but in the end, all the work was worth it. They are so cute! I am so excited that I have an adirondack chair now!!
Thankful for painting with watercolors.  //  Over the past couple of weeks, I have had so much fun playing around with watercolors. The set that I got was cheap, but I love all of the colors. So far, I have really loved how my little paintings have turned out. I am hoping to keep this up & paint more butterflies & flowers!! 
Thankful for musicals & flowers.  //  My local art center put on Oklahoma as their annual summer musical & I got to go see it! I SO love seeing musicals & plays. My grandpa wanted to go for his birthday, so we all got to enjoy it. There was an orchestra & the actors/singers did so great. It was a really fun time! PS. Those black-eyed Susans were all over in the art center parking lot. Loved seeing them all bunched up together like that!
Thankful for a new turquoise ring & for favorite snack/tv show time.  //  I had been looking around for the perfect turquoise ring for a little while and I found this one while in Manitou a couple of weeks ago. Just what I wanted. So happy that I got it!
Thankful for homemade strawberry ice cream & for a post-rain summer sunset.  //  Life is beautiful. GOD is GOOD!!


  1. Your watercolors look great! There's so much beauty and thoughtfulness in everything you do.

  2. Your watercolor paintings are so beautiful, Sarah!!!

    I enjoyed looking at all of these pictures and reading what you wrote about each of them.

    So much to be thankful for!

    P.S. What brand is the watercolor set?
