Lazy . . .

Tell the truth.
Is it lazy to spend a summer morning indoors deep in watercolor?

Summer gauze . . .

I saw the word 'gauze' used to describe the early morning haze in their photograph this morning and it gave me pause.
That's exactly what summer days are - layered in gauze.
From early morning through the humid summer heat - all shrouded in gauze.
Yesterday I took up the brush and sprayed my palette and made the decision to use a different color than the typical cobalt or indigo for summer sky.
The sultry heated haze was pale yellow making the distant trees golden.
Even the greens are muted when clouded with heat shimmer.

These little gems give me pleasure . . .

A severe lack of words today coupled with a desire to post work.

June . . .

A new month - a renewed beginning.
I am finally organizing my work so I can post new work on my BigCartel shop site.
This is the hardest thing for an artist, I believe.
To take time every day to photograph and market their work.
How will the world ever see these sweet little works if I don't make time?
New month - new attitude.
It's all out there.
