Dog Days Afternoon
Dog Days Afternoon is an old term meaning summer is hot and you end up panting like a dog. Of course that doesn't apply now with air conditioning but you kinda feel the afternoon is for a siesta. I start walking at 5:30 when it is getting light out. Go to the store when it is cooler. Make breakfast. Then I can start painting. It feels so good that I'm in the zone. Of course I have 2 paintings going and then have to wait till they get dry. Clean up a bit then back to painting. In the meantime, I'll be working in my mind about the next painting. Sitting and visualizing. Then lunch. Now to rest. Painting is "Ready to Fly" 40x60 diptych acrylic $5400.
