It has been a typical Baltimore July with heat and humidity. My trusty General Electric Fan has been moving the air in my studio every day. I honored its service with an oil painting last week.

Comforting Blue Beauties of Summer

The hydrangeas in our garden are bursting forth with hues of pink, purple, lavender and blue. We have eight bushes and no two are exactly the same color. There is one that stands out with the most brilliant blue blossoms imaginable. I snipped a few flower heads to bring to the studio over the weekend. I wanted to remember how much they comforted me in my melancholia entwined with sweet memories of Thierry Jeannier who left us too soon last month. Rest in Peace dear man. You were a genuine friend and  beloved son to us and we miss you every day.
