Another beautiful morning! I’m really drinking in these days before we’re hit full force with the heat and humidity of our deep south summer! Today’s painting shows some runners and a walker taking full advantage of this morning’s fresh, cool air after yesterday’s thunderstorms. In coming up with a title, I thought it would be fun to put the focus on the car, whose driver was not really driving down the wrong side of the road as it looks like in the picture, but merely giving the pedestrians a courteously generous amount of room as he passed by them on his way to work.

Here are a close-up detail and the underpainting:

No post tomorrow, as I’ll be going on a fun little jaunt to Dallas with some girlfriends until Saturday afternoon, an outing we've been planning for weeks. I’m taking my camera, too, just in case we run across some photo opp’s. Who knows – maybe some Dallas-scapes will show up in a painting or two in the not too distant future.

Don’t worry about Paul, who has almost fully recovered from his fall from the porch last week. He assures me he’ll be having a grand old time watching movies with Trixie (the dog) while I’m away!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
