Sappho,. An ancient Greek Poetess from the century 600 BC wrote these beautiful words. It is a shame we know very little of this wordsmith and an even greater shame that so much of her works have been lost throughout the centuries. Still, we should be happy for what we do know of her and her poetry. For what we know is pretty awe inspiring. Fill in the holes and I would suspect you will find a pretty amazing woman. / This image is © 2018 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Re...

Sunrises are beautiful to watch with their bright colorful hues  but to me the real sight worth waking up in the inky hours for is the dawn. That moment when the darkness departs and the sun is starting to make a slight appearance on the horizon. It is the departure of night and the arrival of day. / The world around you arises while you get a front row seat to the event. Be careful though. This is the time that is fleeting and as marvelous a view as it is you can only relish in it for a...

This couple found the perfect place for a morning jog. Behind them is the fishing pier of Virginia Beach and the view to inspire them is the Atlantic Ocean. What a perfect backdrop for Mother Nature’s gymnasium. / This image is © 2018 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Reserved • Also buy this artwork on stickers, apparel, phone cases, and more.

The fishing pier at Virginia Beach. During the summer this pier is very active with fishermen and vacationers alike but in the winter months the only sun seekers you will find on this iconic structure over the coastline of Chesapeake bay are the birds lined up on it’s railings. / This image is © 2018 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Reserved • Also buy this artwork on stickers, phone cases, home decor, and more.

Robert Frost is one of my very favorite poets. This particular poem always takes me back to my school days. One of the books that was mandatory reading was “The Outsiders”  by S. E. Hinton. In the book one of the characters (Johnny) recites this poem to Ponyboy  in the church before it burned down. I loved these words from the first time I read them in the book. I don’t think it was my first introduction to Robert Frost but it was my first time reading this poem....

I loved the contrast of this brand new engine sitting alone on an overgrown country track. This train is so new there still isn't any graffiti on it. You know it's brand new when it's that clean! It wouldn't look so clean if it were sitting in a city yard. / Just to add to the fun contrast I added a little bit of a grunge background on the overall picture. Now this pristine crisp red engine really stands out in a crowd! / This image is &co...

Somewhere on a back road  in Sanborn NY is this quaint farm. It is old and still working but what I find the most interesting is how the barn, silo and shed are all condensed into one as it sits right on the road. Most barns sit back off the road but this one is so close that if you took this corner at any speed and missed the turn you would be crashing through those beautiful big barn doors and nestling in the stables. / This image is © 2017 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Reserve...

When you watch a kite soar in the sky the first thing you will notice is that it flies the highest if it goes again’t the wind rather than with it. One could take a life lesson from this theory. There are times we need to push the envelope rather than go with it if we want to succeed. The greater the effort, the better the pay off. / This image is © 2018 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Reserved • Also buy this artwork on stickers, apparel, phone cases, and more.

In farm land there is nothing as beautiful or as chilling as a fresh blanket of snow on the world. I love this barn with it’s antique tractor and wagon wheels but the wooden deer on the side and the rooster weather vane were what really caught my fancy. Place them all together under a white fluffy blanket and it all comes together in a Currier & Ives sort of way. / This image is © 2018 Leslie Montgomery All Rights Reserved • Also buy this artwork on stickers, a...
