First day of Summer really made it's voice heard! It sizzled here in Rhode Island, but I, luckily, spent the entire day in the sweet air conditioning (I am trying to look on the bright side here) of the Toyota dealership. Half the day for routine maintenance and readying for a long car trip, and the other half for a freak malfunction of my audio system (hello - I'm music and GPS-less!). At the end of the day my part could not be located (yet) and I will be entertaining myself with song, and reading maps (like in the 'old' days)!!!
BUT I kind of needed that calm before the storm: tonight is Art Stable Gallery's Grand Summer Opening. We have arranged for theatrical skies and sweet cocktails, fine wine and fabulous art for your enjoyment. So many other good things going on tonight, I'm not sure of the crowd, but it will be magical nonetheless.
This painting is a view I see often from my front porch, of Aquidneck Island and the Sakonnet River. The color is enhanced in my painting, but honestly not by much!. I'm saying I'm celebrating the color.
