Soft Summer Days
Summer seems to have found me switching things up a bit and grabbing for some tubes of earth tone paints. We have had some pretty hot temps here in the San Francisco Bay area. In fact, hot temps for many of us in the western US.
Aside from sticking to more of an analogous color palette, I’ve kept the design pretty simple and minimal too.
For me this painting is reminiscent of Florida in the 70’s. A time before all the hotels were built, and you could actually see the beach from the road! Back then, you could just pull off the road, onto the shoulder and walk to the beach! You would have to make your way through palm fronds and grasses, walking in and out and over and some sand dunes before finally throwing down a blanket and slathering on the Coppertone sunscreen. Here’s to some good summer fun!
Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….
Summer time can be magical, keep cool and enjoy!
