Spring 16: Painterly

6:15am-7:00am, Peters Hill, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA
balmy, warmish, breezy, moving clouds

Awesome sunrise this morning: a slow red sun with smoky smudges of cloud passing in front. A huge swath of smooth pink cloud reached over the northeastern quadrant of the sky. Bright white cloud spackle dotted the sky like dabs of paint. So artistically rendered, Ma!

It was warm out, with that nice thick summery marine air. Delicious!

I got duped by an unfamiliar call, which turns out to be an familiar bird (revealed at the end of the track)

This is another of the blackbird's calls which is not the standard trill:

At home I sketched a piece based on the dawn for voices (red sun) and viola (passing smudge clouds).
