Sweet and Sour sun

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


I am sitting at my desk looking out the window, while the scanner whirs below, scanning spread sketches for a picture book. I was just thinking how luxurious light really is, and how it makes simple things like window sills look opulent. My little space has two windows which I am very grateful for! Usually, I am complaining that Massachusetts never seems to get the same sweet and sour sun you see at the end of the day, that such sunlight is only found in Connecticut. But here I am working away in a pearl colored room (a messy) pearl colored room and I feel rich in light, right here.

Here is a little picture of that sun I tried to capture when I was home with my family in Connecticut, a few weeks back. This is ultimate sweet and sour light, especially falling on my Nana's things we took into the house when she passed away.

What a lovely phrase, "sweet and sour sun." I've lived in both CT and MA and I never noticed a difference. Then again, I also didn't feel that Boston was any colder than New Haven, and I've routinely been told I need my temperature gauge adjusted.

What a sweet post, Julia. I imagine alot is different on the east coast from things on the west.

p.s. I am having a Giveaway for my 100th etsy sale. :)
