There is an advantage to all this rain....

There's one advantage to all the rainy, cool weather we've been having:  I'm getting more time at painting.  I'm really pleased with my progress on the 8' city scene.  I'm now working on row number six with seven sketched in. 

Even though it's not hot summer weather, it is warm enough to leave the windows open... thus I don't have a condo filled with fumes.  I love painting with water soluble oils, but even they fill the air with fumes that give me a headache.  I think I'm going to have to invest in a good quality air purifier.  If anyone has any advice please let me know.

If you're in our area, don't forget to visit the Rotary Centre for the Arts before the end of the month.  I have three pieces in the art show in the Galleria.  There are some awesome paintings in the show.


  1. Yey for your progress! And, see, as soon as you realized that the rain was good for you, the sun came out.

  2. Oh to have some of your rain! This piece is turning out so beautifully, Bonnie.
