The weather will be good...when pigs fly?
9 x 11 sketch in Strathmore Visual Journal 90# paper...watercolor and ink.
Only 4 artists showed up today and we froze our buns off. The Greenhouse/Nursery in Boulder Junction, WI (about half an hour from my cabin in Lac du Flambeau) is a very nice venue for painting. If it were sunny. If it were warm.
But nope. Temp was about 52 with a stiff wind and never a touch of sunshine. It didn't rain but that about the only thing going for the weather today! All of us felt our fingers grow numb from cold on JULY 13th!!!
The greenhouse was bedecked with flowers and then outside was this tiny little cottage in which they sold garden equipment and coffee and doodads for our garden like wind chimes and little metal pigs with wings. All the shadows you see are fake.
We did a lovely lunch afterwards and much laughter and good conversation. Then I was off to get some groceries in Minocqua and home by "tea time" (which was NOT on the pier unfortunately). I decided we needed a comfort dinner and did my apple/pork chop bake. This felt so "fall-ish". It kept the cabin warm and we are full and sleepy...curled up reading on the sofa and watching darkness descend over the lake.
