It’s been a month since my last entry into Open Pallet. I would like to say it’s because I’ve been busy painting, or busy drawing or busy writing. Unfortunately, I can’t. I’ve been busy enjoying the summer.
This has been a spectacular summer for those of us who enjoy the outdoors. Anyone who loves sunny days for the beach or walks in the park, this is a dream summer. Those who enjoy a nice green lawn however, this is not a great summer.
It’s August 12, 2016 and I’m looking out the window at what has been a seldom seen sight this season. It’s raining. Good heavens the grass needs the water. Between yesterday and today the browns of the lawns might turn a more appreciable green soon.
In about 5 weeks I’ll be enjoying a trip up to North Ontario where I intend to do some painting and photography. When I went last year at approximately the same time of year I expected to see plenty of fall colours. We had an unusually hot late summer and the result was everything was still green. Maybe this year I’ll capture some colours. Regardless, I will enjoy the trip immensely.
