hello you crazy kids!
back in february i was contacted by the nice people at watercolor artist magazine. they asked if i’d be interested in having our annual art retreat featured in their ART ON THE ROAD issue – august 2018. i was thrilled to be asked and agreed right away. this issue is filled with inspiration and i’m honored to appear with all the other artists, especially brenda swenson! an artist i have long admired. she has an 8 page feature and it is fantastic. if you want to know where to find a copy of your own, it is HERE.
it was 112 in LA today and at 8:09 pm it’s cooled down to a blistering 103. i have been reduced to a puddle of lethargy, but am rousing myself now that our hot star has gone down over the horizon. in fact, i have settled comfortably down on an ice pad to tap out this missive to you. lows tonight will be 83. soon i’ll turn on the house fan i had installed some years ago. even with outdoor temps that high it does such a good job of moving that balmy air around the house and cooling all of us down.
our mild summer season is coming to an end as it always does this time of year and the HEAT begins. it’s not usually this hot though till august into early october. that’s when this part of the world sizzles. still, we are fortunate to mostly have cool nights.
