It's been brutally hot here in St. Louis, with temperatures in the 100's. I have not lived in such a hot climate, and now I know why I avoided climates that are hot and humid. I never knew one could have cabin fever in the summer. At least I am getting a lot of art projects banged out with this heat wave.
The above encaustic painting reminds me of the days when I use to swim in the ocean on hot summer days. I use to love to lay on my back and let the ocean transport me to another world. Now I use the neighbors kiddie pool to keep me cool. At this point one has to go to such extremes to not over heat.
