It's no secret that I love sunsets, they appear in almost everything I make.
Their colours have had me mesmerized since I was a child. Growing up in the centre of a city there was little chance to see them but we always travelled to the sea for holidays and the anticipation of the of the "sky show" was hard to contain.
We always stayed in a little place overlooking the Irish Sea.
I was in my early teens when I saw the Green Flash - have you seen it?
I had no idea what I had seen. For a long time I thought I had made it up in my mind.
When I did find out what it was, sunsets became more addicting - not sunrise, I don't do mornings!
The Green Flash is just that, a flash of green at the moment the sun goes down. It depends on certain conditions and is best seen over the sea. You can find out more about it here or just search for "Green Flash"
So here is my take on that phenomena, with a green mermaid for good measure.
I haven't seen a mermaid yet but one day there will be one waiting to take me for a swim I am sure. Probably the next time I see the Green Flash.
Don't forget to drop into the Summer of Colour and see all the wonderful green art.
