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.
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.
