Summer is Here!
It is finally summer here. It was way too long in coming. For the last two days it was in the nineties. it felt like Arizona to me and it was wonderful. Meanwhile my grandson hates the heat and kept nagging me to turn on the AC. Wait. What? Close the windows again? The ones that have been closed for the last 9 months! No way. Sorry. Use the fans. I hate AC. Except under extraordinary circumstances. For example when I am in Arizona and it hits above 98 degrees, I will use it. Or in the summer here if it is extremely humid and the air quality in the city is bad, I will use it. But I was not ready to shut myself in just yet.
On Saturday we went down to the south shore to visit my son and his family. They live right near the water. It is literally a 2 minute walk to the ocean from their home.
I sat and stared at the water for what seemed like hours. I really needed it. I have been so overwhelmed lately and the extra long cold weather did not help my state of mind. The ocean soothed my soul.
I have been continuing the art though. No matter what. I have been experimenting with using gold under painting. I have tried using red as I love how some artists use that as well as black. Neither color seems to work for me. But the gold does. So I will continue down this rabbit hole and see where it takes me.
Bye for now!
