Summer Sun for I.A.

Inspiration Avenue this week is themed "Summer Sun," so I am submitting a card I was just commissioned to do this past weekend for "Father's Day."

It depicts a little girl and her dad on a high-sea adventure on a Summer's Day, with the red sun setting behind them. Also, there are teddy bears included as part of this nautical outing.



For their safety, and from that old saying about "Red sky at night, Sailor's Delight (Red Sky at Morning, Sailor's Take Warning), I decided it was a setting sun.

So, hope everyone's weekend this past weekend was well! Belated wishes for that. For anyone who wants to submit to Inspiration Avenue, the link to this week's challenge is here:

We use that saying for Shepherds.
Red sky at night - shepherd's delight
Red sky in the morning - shepherd's warning
Red sky in the afternoon - barn's on fire...

Great piece!! Love all the detail and it's full of love and fun.

Love this painting. Got a laugh when you decided it was an evening sky. Is the bear chasing or trying to keep up? Love it regardless!
