The temperature of yesterday was 112 F, we are getting 109 F today. It is almost September. I can't believe it is still this hot. So far we got more than seventy days above 100 F and it has broken the record a few days ago (last record was 69 days in 1925), and the summer is not over yet.

I was too ambitious with my painting yesterday, and almost lost my control. So I backed off a little. This painting is a combined approach: I used knifes for the lights and bushes for the darks. I felt happy, especially the subtle value change between the top and lighter side of the box.

The colors in this piece work so well together. The plum is incredible!
Hopefully it will cool off soon. Thank goodness for AC.

I like this one a lot. Love the looseness of the box combined with the way you painted the plum. Very interesting.
