Random Snaps

I am still staying at home,

Down By The River

With above average temperatures again, 
not much is going on in my world. 
A short walk along the river was managable.

Do you see me?

Hot & Humid Days In July

It's been so hot here for the last week,
 (35-42C which is 93-106F), 
that I haven't gone out of the house!

I took a couple of pics through the window.

I have air conditioning in my studio, so... I painted this.

Leftovers Again

I haven't been travelling very far from home. A trip to the grocery store, and a meander down the aisles of my favourite art supply store, (resulting in major acquisitions). So, I am sharing some photos of what's been going on in my yard the past week.
