Summer is here!

Summer is here - it slipped in the door today.  The temperatures in NE Ohio are very warm and humid.   The weather man is predicting a cool front coming in tomorrow evening.   That will be welcome.  Some much needed rain arrived on Sunday and Monday.  The garden seemed to leap overnight.   The flowers had a lovely bath and everything renewed.

I took the opportunity to enjoy morning's mist with Sarge.   He always joins me as I move about in the garden.  We check out what is blooming.   Perhaps a weed or two will get a pull.

With the arrival of this warmer season the mowing slows a bit and the frenzy of spring passes.    Summer is my time to sit back and relax.   I catch up on my reading and art.

  I have stretched a couple of sheets of cold-press and hot press paper - revisited some old sketches -


gathered a few photo references - and am in the process of experimenting with some different color mixes.

Will keep you posted as things progress.

It is time now to go "look-up" - hope you will too.
Looking Up

Wishing you God's Blessings for a wonderful summer!
