Shadow Shot Sunday


It's Shadow Shot Sunday time again. That's good because I get to visit Harriet's blog. She's the host of SSS and she lives in Australia, a place that I'm determined to visit one day.

House Shadows

These were taken in my entryway in the early morning, with the East sun pouring in slowly over the wall.

This is a photo of a detail of a painting we have hanging in our entryway. It's an original painting by a South American artist whose name is hard to make out on the canvas. One of my favorites from WP's small (and humble) collection of art.


The green of the wall is the new color I recently painted my entryway. It sets off the painting rather nicely. I'm liking this little corner of the house as it is redecorated my way.

  2. I like the shadow shots! And that painting detail got me thinking about a South American artist I know of here, who also paints brightly colored village scenes. But your painting appears to be in a different style. Her name is Miriam Sagasti, and you might like her work. Daughter and I posted about her here .

    Your house sounds like one of my paintings - where I get a corner the way I want and then I can push that "rightness" into the rest of the piece from there. I hope that continues for you - it's great fun.

  3. Wonderful photos! Trying to practice the whole light and shadow effect myself these days, without much success.

    These, however, are really good. Kudos!

  4. Oh, Gina, these are beautiful! I am picturing your entryway. I love it! The shadow on the painting lends what must be a whole new feel to it. And the lamp and plant are lovely.

  5. Wow! These are great Shadow Shot Sunday pictures! I'm noticing that I am looking for shadows everywhere now since joining SSS! I'm like Bobbie, I'm trying to picture your entryway. The lamp and the way the light is reflecting on it and the gorgeous painting is lovely! How imaginative and creative you are to even have noticed the shadow reflecting on your gorgeous painting! I'm sure learning to pay more attention to everything now! Thanks for the lessons!

  7. Thanks, you kind souls!

    Steve: I can see why the detail of my painting reminded you of Miriam Sagasti. Thank you for introducing me to her work. It's absolutely lovely.

    I'll have to take more photo of the details of our painting and one of th entire canvas. It contains touches of magic realism like Endaro Crow. From what I understand from WP, the artist of our painting was a student of Crow.

  8. These are so cool! I first thought that your top photo was of an axe! I was thinking...ok where is this going?...I'm a little scared...hehe. Then I read it was of your lamp. Phew! Love the green walls! Hey I really hope you do one day visit Australia :)

    PS- I'm not sure why you couldn't see your link in Mr Linky. Strange, because I can see it. You are listed as participant #16. I do know the linky site was down for a while today, so it may have been down when you popped in also. Have a great week ahead :)
