Painting in the Garden, Loving the Heat and Humidity

The garden is so lush with color I just have to be out painting. So what if it's 101 degrees outside!

The temperature in New York this week is in the 90s. Today the thermostat in my car read 101F. People all around are wilting.

Get with the program people! We live in New York and this is the summertime, the BEST weather we're going to have so enjoy it now because around the corner "you know what" is lurking!

It's a four letter word beginning with an "S" and ending with a "W."

Just dwell on that for a moment while I go about my business.

There is no way I'm going to complain about the heat. Nope. I am loving the heat and humidity. That is a fact.

The summer has to be the best season for all the obvious reasons and painting is a big one for me. I can move it all outside and enjoy the weather. The sun, the scent of flowers and grass, the colors of it all, everything is just beautiful.

That said, I worked on, and finished, another watercolor painting.
