She was thrilled by a very bright, low-flying bolide one night while we were out with the telescope that she's been hooked on looking for another. She loves art and creating art. Here is a bit of a project she started, called "Fireball". First image is the original. Second is the first being incorporated into a larger painting. Both with acrylic paint.

Neat. These--particularly the second--have a middle ages feel, almost reminiscent of something you'd see on a tapestry from the 12th century.

Very nice. I like the way the living world meets the greatest physical world there. Jetsam provided materials for life, water probably included, after all.
