By the Way...

I almost forgot to post a recently completed watercolor of a Robin and a just-about-to-bloom magnolia. People have told me that I have captured the Robin's "attitude" in this painting. That's a good compliment, as far as I'm concerned. This was completed in April but I fell behind in posting it until now.

Fleece and Scarf in July

I had to keep rubbing my hands together and my feet actually felt a little cold last weekend (the end of  July, according to the calendar) at the Glenview art show. After several years participating, I felt emboldened to ask for one of the coveted shady spots, and got it. Who needs a shady spot when the sky looks like metal and the temperature never rises above the 60s? Answer: no one.
It's better than dragging myself through a weekend of withering heat, humidity, and sogginess, though. And, it's good to come home Sunday night without being exhausted and dehydrated. A few more sales would have been nice, but the crowds were down,and that's how it goes sometimes.
