Oh, how I enjoy summer. I love wearing summer clothes and the smell of barbecue. Listening to the birds through my open windows is such a treat and trying to avoid the stones when I go for a dip in the lake are some of my favourite things.
Painting outside is soooo nice. I'm not a plein air artist but I do enjoy taking my paints out on the deck to work on my present project. Warm breezes, birds singing and the knowledge that I'm truly blessed. It can't get much better.
All that said, you might be wondering where the picture of my next painting is. I don't have one. I know what I'll be painting next. It's a sweet picture of a little boy feeding the pigeons. I've been preparing my board and figuring out how I'll position the elements but I haven't started the painting. Trouble is our holidays are fast approaching and we have a trip planned and I won't be able to paint while on the road. It should be a great trip to attend the wedding of a niece I haven't met... but I'll miss my paints.
Life is good.
