In the nights silence, the River shines bright
and flows without awareness of the white light.

Under the water the dance is glorious,
as fish glisten bathed only in moonbeams.

On the shore the people watch,
wondering where it all ends and when it begins.

The Moon smiles his nightly smile.
his job is good, his job is right.
All is well, on this night.

This is my entry for the 14th challenge of The Artist Challenge. It is my 9th consecutive entry and I almost missed completing it in time. I submitted it about one hour before it premiered, too close for comfort!

At the premier, Vikki North, the site administrator, announces the next months challenges. For August the two topics are, at first glance - nothing! But after some consideration, I know they will be both challenging and interesting. They are "No-Theme Theme" and "Anonymous". Yes, this will be interesting indeed!

I am very pleased with this painting. I was a little apprehensive about this one for some reason. As usually is the case, the worry is not necessary.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
~Leo Buscaglia

OK, my friends, it is off to a few hours of sleep for me. I have things to do this weekend!

Beckie, I love how you have the river rounding the mountains. Beautiful and deep colors, much as I picture in the jungles of South America. Nicely done!! I am not clicking on that challenge link. I already am participating in two and a half! LOL (I say half because I don't know about one of the challenges I do; I haven't seen a new challenge in a while...)

Beckie, I hope you are doing well. Haven't seen you in a couple of days so I begin to fret...!
