Twenty one straight days of heat that is over 90 degrees. In Indiana, with the high humidity, That means it feels HOT – oppressively hot! And so my 100 Degree Summer series continues. Remember 100 degrees is over 90 degrees. When I painted this painting I was thinking about the sky and the sunrise and sunset and how everything is affected by the heat, humidity and dust in the air…beautiful colors for one thing.

  1. Beautiful colors!
    But hang in there, it’s supposed to be only in the upper 80’s tomorrow! Whooohooooo!

    A beautiful riot of hot, steamy color! It’s hot here too. They keep talking about how high the “dew point” is, which to me just means that it will be like pea soup outside and standing on the subway platforms will be unbearable. I’m ready to move to a place on the Adriatic!

    • That old “dew point” never seems to feel refreshing…your analogy to pea soup is right! We should be in the 80’s today and had rain last night and a cooler breeze this morning. Hope it makes to you soon. Thank you for the comment on the painting. Love my color!

    A wonderful painting. Like a sea that is reaching its boiling point.

    • Thank you. What you saw is very interesting. I saw a sky roiling and rioting. You saw a sea boiling. That’s why I like abstracts…reduces the boundries so we can see what WE see. It is always fun for me to hear.

    I like the color in this one. All that blue with a hot spot. Beautiful.
