My favorite times to paint small is either when I travel or summer in the Northwest. July is here and finally some warm weather. This was a record year for low temperatures as it wasn't 'til the third week in June when our daytime high finally hit 75 degrees. My tomato plants are not happy!
Warm weather keeps me outside, so my painting days are kept short, my paintings kept small. Lately I've been having fun painting in my courtyard just enjoying the sun. The bees are buzzing, birds are chirping, and kitty is just basking in the warmth of it all with no reaction to birds dive-bombing her.
Below, please find some "painting shorts" of my summer so far.
