Let’s Walk

Midsummer in the south is unbearably hot for most of the day, but fabulous in the early morning hours.

It’s a magical time. Walking in the nearby woods, you can hear crickets and frogs; birds are singing their walkup soliloquies and baby birds are shrieking for breakfast. ┬áIf you look hard, and are lucky, you might spy the owl watching over everything before his big sleep.

It’s a great time for a walk in the woods with a dog.

This painting began with at least 3 layers of underpaint: pepto-bismol pink, followed by a layering of baby blue and finally a hazy white and gold with a rainbow of highlights, trying to evoke the mysteries of the woods and summer thunderstorms.
