It has rained small amounts all around but so far we have got virtually nothing. Indiana has lost 30 percent of the corn crop and some farmers are thinking about cutting beans and using the stalks as fodder. The drought is classified as “extreme”. I don’t even worry about my grass anymore. My worries just seem petty.
I finished a new painting. Once again my thoughts are consumed by this horrible weather and our 100 degree summer. We may get a break today and tomorrow with slightly lower temperatures and the sky is cloudy but that really doesn’t mean much. This painting is 100 Degree Summer – 6. It is a half sheet of 300# Arches torn lengthwise. It has lots of green and teal and shots of orange and red. I think I was torn between cool water and wanting to see some green grass. Everything got jumbled up but I think it made a pleasing painting. May it cool and refresh you!
