Summer 2011

As I have said in the past I am not sure where time goes. It seems like I am always trying to catch up.  I apologize for not keeping up with this blog over the summer.  The summer of 2011 was a very hot and humid one indeed and it seems that when the temperature goes up into the 80's and 90's and the humidity increases my energy level goes into a tail spin.  I did try to stay in the cool air conditioning during much of the hot weather.  Whenever I could I painted in air conditioned comfort but rarely made it over to my Western Avenue Studio in Suite #326..........the building was like an oven and due to its brick construction it retained the heat. I continued to meet with my art colleagues in the Nashua Artists Breakfast Club an experience that I always find fun and instructional.  Although my production level was at a minimum I did continue to work on several paintings.  I will say more about these in the next few posts.  Now that the cooler weather has arrived and we have begun autumn activities I will be posting more often and painting more often.  Sometimes taking a break and stepping back helps inspire an artist to move ahead with new ideas.
