Summer doldrums???

If it is July in Florida
You can be sure it is steamy hot in Florida
I have been painting on the lanai and it has become a labor of love for sure.
If I get outside early, not so bad.
But if I get an idea to try in the afternoon, WHEW it is sweaty out there.
I was rummaging around in my dead painting file and came up with this green
background.  I don't use green very much but was pleased with the outcome.

I also had another Tar Gel project in the works.
I added layers and layers of Tar Gel and then did a light violet wash.

So that is what's happening here this week.
Wishing you all a Happy PPF


  1. I love the green one especially, it looks like those circles are swimming around in green water, great! Happy PPF, stay cool, hugs, Valerie

  2. I really like the first abstract. The tar gel looks like a fun medium to play with too. Happy PPF and try to stay cool!

  3. Love the colors of the green painting and the abstract one is fine too.
    Happy PPF 🌸

  4. I love the tar gel project! It looks amazing! And the green artwork looks great too! Very cool ideas for such a hot place you currently stay.

  5. I am a fan of green myself...great's freezing here....2 degrees.....I miss summer...:-( ...from ppf...xx

  6. I love green, but not all greens. This is one of the ones I do really love. It's beautiful! The heat index here today was 104°F.

  7. I don't use green very much either, but this piece is really great! It's a beautiful shade of green too. And the tar gel project is awesome! Hope you can still enjoy the sun a bit. We had rain here all day ...

  8. It's always intriguing to rework a piece,, it turned out beautiful

  9. Wonderful artwork, great texture in the tar gel piece! Very pretty!!

    Hugs Giggles
