Flighty


Tennessee to Georgia to Alabama to Mississippi to Louisiana to Texas ... then back again, and all the while there is a heat wave happening. Sigh. As if Texas in late July is not hot enough, they had the hottest days of the year so far while we were there. Well, we're finally back to our own roost, where it's a relatively cool ninety something degrees. (Relatively.)

Really, is it just the summer temperature that has me so artistically uninspired? Still, I suppose I should show up here a bit more often than I have lately. I'm a bit embarrassed ... or maybe that warm flush is just the heat ...

Despite the heat, despite the flagging, despite not painting for a while, Linnie -- this is sheer magic!! The white egret pops so well against the incredible colors of the marsh -- it's magic, sheer Linda Magic!!! LOVE IT!!!!! And so glad you're painting -- hon, I miss you!

Well dang, why didn't you say you were going through Louisiana? I'd a run somewhere to meet you, even if it was just for a few minutes as you hurried through my state!

Glad you are back around, and yes, maybe the heat has wilted the artistic inspiration, at least, it sure seems so to me!

Thank you, Lin! I'll try and not be quite so absent ...
Annie -- I thought about getting in touch with you -- of course, it was while I was passing through Louisiana that it occurred to me. I was along the I-20 corridor, and aren't you down closer to I-10? I'll let you know the next time we go through, though!

Wow....gorgeous! such depth!

annie said...

Linda, yes I am closer to I-10. I-20 would have been a stretch (but even so, I might have tried it)!
