Visual Vocabulary: Gloaming

Gloaming: twilight, dusk. As in, "The little lamb enjoyed his gourmet meal of naturally-fertilized grass, serenaded by the sounds of his family baaa-ing and lit by the beautiful colors of the gloaming."

Can you imagine if Bella and Edward's series had been called, "The Gloaming"? I bet there would be thousands fewer goth girls obsessed with vampires in middle and high school right now. (Not that I have any room to ridicule goth teenagers obsessed with vampires). That's ok, Bella's on her way out anyway since she's been dethroned by Katniss. 

Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. You can see all of them here, and read more about the process behind them here.
