There it is! My 30 days of summertime paintings are done! Yesterday was another hot day and I could not bring myself to sit out on the street, so here is the view from my shady patio. Today is going to be even hotter than yesterday, so I am glad I am done for now. It was a very interesting 30 days. Very different from the painting in the spring. Painting every single day means you don’t get to pick the optimal weather conditions for painting, you paint in all of it or you make it work somehow. The hottest days were the hardest, even though I was always longing for sunny views to paint. And I don’t think I’ve ever dealt with ants while painting before; there were two days of the 30 where I had ants crawling up my legs and into my paint–yesterday on the patio was one of them. So now I will plan for my next project and hopefully keep painting regularly in the meantime–it is too easy to let days and weeks slip by without doing any painting. And I need to keep painting.
