The temperature was only 88 degrees today – a veritable cool spell. Maybe now I will stop whining. I have a new 100 Degree Summer painting. It is inspired by the heat and the storms that have come on the front edge of a cold front. Baxter, our youngest dog, is frightened of thunderstorms and I hope this painting reflects the heat, noise, flashing light and unrest we have all been feeling.

100 Degree Summer - Storm

This painting is on a sample of Fabriano paper. I prefer the Lana and Kilimanjaro. This paper curls and has a harder finish than the others I’ve been using recently.

    Lots of movement and explosions of energy, Linda. I really love that!

  3. WhoooHooo a day under 90! Had a storm blow threw last night and loved every drop of rain and cool breeze, fall temps are on their way. The painting has such great energy, I’m always amazed how abstract can show so much if done right. Great job!

    Oh, this is a beauty. Not only do I love the colors in this one, but it really reflects the noise, heat and lightning.

    Poor Baxter. My sister’s dog is like that. He just shakes and tries to wither hide or get in bed with her when there’s a storm.

    Hope Ken is feeling ok.
