It's getting hot in here

When I went outside to sign for a package earlier today one thing was clear.  That was going to be the last time I stepped outside for the day.  It's hot here.  Way too hot for a northern state.  That heat dome that was in the midwest a few days ago?  Why couldn't you midwesterners keep it to yourselves?  Anyway.  I'm staying in where it's cool.
That's fine, because the studio is feeling good, and for me, summer is all about drawing.  Berry picking (so to speak) and storing up big ideas for winter.  I'm loving painting with gouache in my sketchbook these days.  What are you doing to stay out of the sun?


  1. I wish I were so fortunate to be able to stay out of the heat during the summer! I don't leave my house on my days off tho!
    I drive a city bus and we cook up front! The middle of the bus is nice, but we sit in direct sun with large windows in front and left side, and every time the doors open, it's like opening the door to an oven... sigh.
    Love the picture!

  2. this beautiful grid made me scamper upstairs to the studio to start work on my third Rever pieces.
    Thanks for the delightful spark
