It is so hot.

Too hot to go outside, too hot to do a lot, even with the air con on one sits and sweats, it is revolting. I cant even sew eve3n though I am next to a fan. It is humid which means the evaporitive air con doesnt work very well. I picked up my pencil and from memory and with a bit of licence did the second sketch from Hildred's blog, I loved the movement of the figures and then I couldnt make up my mind if this first one was a mushroom or a jelly fish! Fun to play around with. We did walk this morning but only a short one as it was getting too hot even early in the morning. I am reading quite a lot. Feeling wicked that I am not doing very much but .... well its too hot!

After a dreadful day I draw silly birds

Yesterday having to put down our young dream stallion was one of the worst days. Nothing was going good to save him and it was our only option. The whole family is shattered. Last night I couldn't settle to anything and another silly bird appeared from under my pencil, Algenon Baggy Breaks. Today is our 56th wedding anniversary, it is very hot, we had a short beach walk this morning, to night we are going out to dinner, usually we have lunch but the weather is against that. I find it unbelievable that it has been that long but I like being with my best friend.

Playing with a thought

I have had this idea for a small painting in my head for a while, what things look like just after a fire, still with embers and a few stumps still burning. I havent done much painting for ages but this rather stark painting wouldnt go away. Hope that it isnt the forcast for the next few days when more heat is expected. I was up early this morning having to go in for a fasting blood test and I have been sewing but in between this painting started to appear. Normally I am so impatient that with watercolours I dont really let them dry enough. This time I did and perhaps it worked.
