HOT HOT HOT!



It has been sooo hot here! I can't really remember a time that it has been this hot in Oregon. Also there has been no AC in my studio. :( I have tried to paint in my studio but it has been sooo HOT! So I have been working on little things outside of studio. My poor little dogs also have been roasting in the weather. Here is little Yoda making a face.

This painting is of Sauvie's Island. I have been thinking about changing up my medium that I add to the oil paint. I normally do 1/3 turpenoid, 1/3 linseed, and 1/3 galkyd, but I have been doing a little bit of reading about expanding my horizons with stand oil and damar, or maybe doing some egg tempura.

Cheers to you all out in blog land!
