After a rain shower and just before the sun disappeared in the evening, I managed to capture these last sunrays brightly illuminating the top of a palm tree.

At this point I would like to tell you about the work of another artist, my dear friend Karin Weber. We have known eachother for several years now and at one time she was one of my painting class students. Nowadays, besides painting, she makes plaster sculptures, mainly of women, that are witty and amusing. My personal favourites are her white sculptures. Do have a look at her work on her blog

Maybe my favorite. I had missed this post - my anniversary and I was on a trip! Beautiful!
