I always walk away from summer kicking and screaming. The weather was off to a rocky start this season so I did my best to make up for it with as many trips to the pool and beach as possible. I enjoyed the local outdoor concerts under the stars, hanging with friends on the patio, cackling over David Sedaris' "Calypso", taking an inspiring online class and finally-riding a 6ft inflatable alligator in the ocean. That was an unexpected post Labor Day purchase down in Spring Lake. Yes, I am seven.
Summer rocks! I practically live outside. Ask the squirrels! I've been enjoying plein air painting in the gardens in my town, going to the pool, writing, reading lots of books, beaching it, outdoor concerts and laughing with my friends. ( they rock too! ) Hope all of you are enjoying your summer as well!!!
It's that time of year where I create simply for the joy of creating. No edits. No market strategies. No voice in my ear about what sells or is trending in publishing...just painting by the pool. Sometimes I need that. Especially after some of the letdowns as of late. Art restores... :)
