Oil and water

FB_IMG_1568676690618

A thin film

Rainbow bright

Smeared on tarmac,

Immiscable,

Like oil and water

They cannot be mixed.

A molecule thick

Sliver of light.

Oil floated on water

Dropped and dripped.

A subtle play of shimmers

A gleam of glimmers,

A ray of sunlight,

Surface spread out like a pancake.

Pollution is washed away

Down drains, into soil.

The colour of oil…..

Grr camera problems

I took a beautiful photo of a very strong, bright, double rainbow, when we were in Llangollen earlier today. It was the best rainbow I’ve ever seen. But my mobile phone is not working well. If I put something on Instagram it duplicates the photo. It also seems to duplicate other photos. I keep having to delete lots of photos (which I did this afternoon after missing the spectacular rainbow). The photos are Mb not Kb. I wish I knew how to change the file sizes. I will have to find out how.

Rainbow garden

My hubby shouted to tell me he had made a rainbow today. The hose was spraying water and the sunlight was behind us and bright.

In one of the photos there is even a double rainbow.

 

Rainbow

Coloured with light,

shining with sparkles,

water in flight.

 

Rainbow

glittering brightly,

wonderful vision

droplets so spritely.

 

Rainbow

water drops glisten

spectrum of sound

making you listen.

 

Rainbow

to see your smiling bow

happy to watch

your coloured sparks flow.

An explosion of colour makes me feel joyous, excited, satisfied, sainted with brilliance. I would love to turn this into a tee shirt, a throw for a sofa or a bed. It’s a bit bright for a painting on a wall.

This was a quick drawing in ArtRage oils, then I used a rainbow flood fill in the gaps and then a smudge tool. Finally I used the layout app to duplicate and rotate the drawing.

I know they are only simple tools but you can create some interesting things with them.
