Margaret said...

Oh! The glass! May I have your permission to use your glass photos as quilting motifs?

Ms. said...

wonderful old door wonderful photos as usual...sometimes I love a mystery. In this case I'd prefer to know where you obtained the photo. My guess is an abandoned building somewhere in your neighborhood.

neki desu said...

Velma Bolyard said...

ronnie, yes
margaret, yes, i didn't make the glass!
ms, i don't remember except it was in ogdensburg, ny. my neighborhood has barn doors, mostly!

Heavenly...especially the texture of the peeling paint.

Velma Bolyard said...

Nancy said...

such beautiful glass, so old and frail but very precious...

Velma Bolyard said...

kaite, just like my front door glass, some of which is taped together, while others were smashed.

Love the red door!

Have just travelled along your October postings my friend, oohing and ahhing and seeing the magic that you seek out through your days..
Really loved the session with the master colour maker and wondered about what that would be like ... to play with those soft colours!

Thanks for the lovely wander and cup of tea I pretended to share with you Velma ... most refreshing! Now I will go and see what i can see in the bright mid-afternoon sun... not nearly so subtle my surroundings. But still there are things to find for sure!

Velma Bolyard said...

yes, sophie, i want to keep those colors all for myself! asao has a deep respect for those pigments. i have a couple of earths i've collected that i now need to USE. we will share some tea someday, i believe. and i'm glad you enjoyed.

Like Sophie above, I too have enjoyed meandering through your early november photos of the aftermath of Sandy and other things -- only to arrive at this beauty which stopped me.

Your photos of the landscape you live in are stunning - but sometimes the ancient man made/hand made touches us in mysterious wys.

I love this red door - everything about it - and shall return to look at it again.

love to you.
Thanks also for your updates re: jude.

Velma Bolyard said...

judy, it's wonderful to hear from you, and that alot of wake robin wasn't too much! that door stopped me in my tracks, and i only had the phone (camera) and a student with me, so didn't get great shots. jude keeps in touch, drove 20 miles to send an email.
