Here we are with One Word Sunday once again. Debbie has selected Touch for this week’s theme, and I have gone with this… but can you tell what it is?

I shall not keep you guessing. Oh no, not this week.

It’s a touch of yellow paint on my pallet that I found by chance yesterday.

Obviously, it’s now dry to the touch. As it’s quite a bright yellow, and the middle photo’s square, I’m also linking this post to Becky’s BrightSquares.

The links go to the respective sites and open in separate windows.


Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday this week is ‘Light’.

Above are some candles, with candlelight. Below are some crystals with both reflected and refracted light. This light, of course, includes the candlelight, and other light sources as well. It took me ages to get just that tiny speck of yellow light there in the bottom half of the stone… but got it I did!

The Colours of Now

Over on World Metamorphosis, Visionkeeper has sent out a request for an artistic creation featuring just four colours (Fluorescent Green, Black Currant, Electric Orange and Moon Glow Yellow) which represent the times we live in; Moon Glow Yellow representing faith.

When I started this all of the colours were separate, bold, and colliding with each other in a very garish way. There was no structure, which is what I intended, but it didn’t feel right.

I started blending the colours. They started swirling. They were circling something but I didn’t know what. I wanted the pale yellow to cut through vividly, and as soon as I added the colour I knew exactly what it was.

Not only was the Earth brighter than the fading, swirling mess of the other three colours around her, she was also rising above it.

And with faith, we can rise above anything.
