EDin May - Final

Lastly, "into each life a little rain must fall', after all there would be no lush green, and bountiful fruits and veggies, and no Life without rain. It seems fitting that the last day in May in New England is Rain - washing the canvas sky and land for a new month.

Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden, CT http://www.ct.gov/Dep/cwp/view.asp?A=2716&Q=325264 is full of hiking trails and even a castle. I only see it occasionally from the highway - the giant is always in repose, but quite intriguing. Perhaps someday I will venture in.

May is gone now but the Every Day In May challenge has been invigorating, and sometimes exhausting. More importantly I have greatly enjoyed other's work as they participate. I will miss opening my computer to see what is 'new' each day.

Perhaps I will continue with every other day in June?

It sounds as if the bug has bitten you ... "Every other day" sounds a good compromise, as I agree with you on how exhausting this May challenge has sometimes been.

A really nice final entry.

Sandy, this feels so VAST! Love the subtle lines in the field, drawing the eye to the distant mountains!

Have really enjoyed your paint a day in May challenge - particularly the irises - each time I enter your blog I scan right back through them again. !!!Irises are not easy to achieve are they - I know because I spend an hour in my garden under the sun brolly painting a group this very afternoon!!!!
