"Sun and Clouds"
4.5"x4.5" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge 100 Painting Thirty-Three
by Ruth Andre
Today the temperature is soaring outside at 109.5 and it is an energy saving day so we are not allowed to run the air-conditioner. I am sneaking a session on the computer to write this blog. It is darn hot, too hot and I know it gets hotter in other parts of the country so I am not really complaining but I am not able to paint since it is way too hot in my studio. I feel tied down with no place to go. Yesterday it was hot and then clouds formed and we had a bit of much needed sky shade. It was so nice and made the temperatures almost tolerable. I do like the painting today, "Sun and Clouds". The lively yellow and white has a lovely contrast on the dark background. Hopefully the clouds will find their way into the valley again today. It may be too much to ask for but a quiet rain would be very welcome.
