Spare me

The lack of a/c in our house especially in my studio is giving everything a heavy feel. Clothes feel heavy, food feels heavy, dark paintings feel heavy, paint feels heavy. The spare lines from the weekend sketches at Lake Eola are what I am feeling today. The man's profile and the woman and her camera, quick gesture type drawings with a brown gelly roll pen...still love those things. So spare us the Florida heat without air conditiong. This reminds me of the post I made right after the lightning strike. It went something like least we have electricity and therefore air conditioning unlike the days following the hurricanes of years past. Spare me.


  1. Wish I could send you a cool breeze, but it is over 100° here. I love the brevity of your sketches. They definitely capture the lightness you crave.

  2. Thank you Marianne. I think we are all roasting!
