Dreaming of Cooler Weather

 I'm thinking of painting a nice cold winter scene to help with the oppressive heat this week similar to the bottom image, but of course, change it up.

First I have to get outside and trim my lilac bush that has taken over my sidewalk area, cut back my iris, and weed.  Before this week we had experienced several flash floods and rain every day.  This made it impossible to get outside and do any long overdue yard work.  My yard went from looking waterlogged to dry and dusty in a matter of a couple days.
As I've probably mentioned before, my favorite seasons to paint are autumn and winter.  Christmas scenes though are my all time favorite

What are you doing to keep cool or dry?  


  1. Christmas in July always sounds good... I don't know how you folks do it. Cooler weather has already moved in for us. Just in the knick of time because the heat and humidity were wearing me out. Hang in there! That flooding in Kentucky was horrific.

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous work Catherine!

  3. What am I doing? Hibernating in my house until Summer fades into Fall. I'm not a fan of the heat and this Summer has been a doozy.

    I can't wait to see your painting when it's finished. You know I love them :)

    Stay cool as best you can and don't work too hard!
