Lonely Looking Sky









Lonely lookin sky
lonely sky, lonely looking sky
and bein' lonely
makes you wonder why
makes you wonder why
lonely looking sky
lonely looking sky
lonely looking sky

Lonely looking night
lonely night, lonely looking night
and bein' lonely
never made it right
never made it right
lonely looking night
lonely looking night
lonely looking night

I mentioned Jonathan Livingston Seagull as the source of my title "Facts of Flight" for my three-part series of paintings. The series are finished and I will show the past painting in my next post. Doing these paintings, I am forever studying the shapes of seagulls. As it goes in nature, there are sometimes hundreds of gulls coming over one after the other a few meters from home. At other times, I have to walk a mile or two to stalk a single bird!

This morning I found some good examples of distant birds among my photos, and I hope you liked to see them accompanied by the lovely lyrics of Neil Diamond!

  1. Beautiful photos Marie. I had to read JLS in high school, a best seller's class. I remember enjoying the book at the time. I never see skies as lonely for some reason. I wonder why?

  2. Marie, I love these beautiful images and the lyrics of Neil Diamond are a wonderful match.

    You asked me about Facebook and somehow I am not finding you there -- perhaps searching for the wrong name -- I am under my full name, including my maiden name -- Mary Louise Pitman Paquet (how is that for a mouthful)- Friend me please. I wish I really understood Facebook. I would like to do something more effective there with my art than an occasional post. I must consult my grandchildren!
