It's mid July and 90+ temps are the norm for a while to come. Realizing that a lot of frustration comes from using photographs, I am working on painting what's outside the studio window while sticking with old themes for collage. How I would love to go to McLeod and set my easel up by the river and paint the bridge. I see so many great paintings on Instagram now. They paint from life and it's really inspiring. This is one of my collage offerings for Charleston Artist Collective for August.
