This is just wonderful! Charming and inviting. Yeikes, hot stuff there. Tennessee is only in the 90's with the same in humidity. 112 degrees is oppressive. But your artistic muse must not be effected by the heat!

I'm soooo feeling for you ... our temps aren't quite as high (though the humidity is double), but right now our AC is on the fritz, so it feels like we're with you. :( ... ah well, such is life.

OH! great image! - love the bits of bright; great element!

I have been following your blog since I first accidentally found it. I love all your drawings and ATC's and I would sound like a canary always repeating "I love it!" but now i can't stop myself from writing a comment. I love this drawing!

Thank you for this blog. It is really interesting :)

March 12, 2008 you had a wonderful drawing that said "Painting is another way of keeping a diary." I used it in my diary to note the day I retired (July 3rd 08). Your art has developed beautifully. Thank you for the daily inspiration.

Holey Moley and I am complaining because the temo is 83 and so is the humidity. I'll be back in winter.

Wonderful scene here and love that pot.
