All the Colors of the Dark

A slowly fading part of a colourful piece of street art on an abandoned lot in Zaragoza.
It has been almost 4 years since we started our journey there and it feels far away and long ago from where I am at the moment, but still very familiar.

If you´ve never been and get the chance it´s highly recommended; it doesnt get more Spanish than there, even the double-decker bus tour doesnt include English…

Lightning Thunderstorm Over North Boulder Colorado


Striking Photography by Bo

 Lightning Over North Boulder Colorado IBM Acrylic Print

Colorado Lightning Thunderstorm May 23rd, 2011.  This storm came in from the south, I was in North Boulder County and saw it hitting over boulder and the Flatirons.  There were four award winning shots that I took with my eyes and mind but could not get a good location to get that shot in time.

It was hitting about every ten to 15 minutes and lightning bolts hit over Boulder about  8 -10  times, good cloud to cloud and to ground strikes.  By the time I got here it started to die and go north.  This is the 2nd shot in this storm looking NW from 75th Street, west towards the Rocky Mountains front range foothills.  Lights on the right are from IBM and behind that is Hay Stack Mountain.  Buy a custom print online –  Lightning Thunderstorm Over North Boulder Colorado

Teepee or Tipi covers are made by sewing together strips of canvas or tanned bison hide (historically) and cutting out a semicircular shape from the resulting surface. The cover historically used buffalo skins; an optional skin/cloth lining; and a canvas or bison calf skin (historically) door. There may also be an optional, partial interior ceiling, called an ozan in Lakota, that covers sleepers and protects them from rain

Ever Been Hypnotized?


Beautiful Sharon!

Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings

A few people have said that my new series “Transforming Energy” is hypnotizing.  I’ve never been hypnotized and am uncertain if it would even be possible.  I am pretty strong willed.  Also I am not very open to suggestion nor does the placebo effect work on me.  I do not believe everything I hear/see and I do not trust doctors very much.  Not that hypnotists are doctors, but to my mind they are close enough in principle.  Additionally as a survivor or childhood abuse I know I would not be comfortable with this practice even if it could work on me.  How could you trust anyone with your psyche like that?  I’d have to have my husband or sister with me and wouldn’t they get hypnotized too?  At any rate, I do find it fascinating.

The term “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word hypnos which means sleep. The words “hypnosis”…

Ever Tasted Luscious?


Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings

Luscious.  Say it very slowly.  Just saying the word feels sensual.  The original meaning had to do with food.  It was used in reference to vittles that were sweet and pleasant to taste or smell. However, it has also come to mean strong sensual or sexual appeal.  You can have luscious lips or a luscious lychee.

My new piece is titled “Luscious Lemon”.  We typically do not think of this yellow citrus fruit as sweet, but there is a variety that grows well in Florida.  It is called a Meyer’s lemon and I’ve just planted a tree!  They are fragrant and have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the more common Lisbon or Eureka supermarket lemon varieties.  You can peel and eat these beauties.  They are native to China and thought to be a cross between a true lemon and either a mandarin or common orange.  The orange in the mix…
