Summer is slowly fading...at last!

When we lived in Maine we would always be sorry to see summer end, but happy to see the colors of autumn, but sorry to know what came after that...winter...UGH!  Shoveling and driving in snow. High heating bills and layer upon layer of clothes to keep warm in minus zero temps.

Well, now that we don't live in Maine any more and have moved back to Arizona, our outlook on the seasons has reverted back to southwest mode which is just the opposite of northeast mode. In other words we're glad to see summer end and we're  looking forward to fall and winter with temps in the 80's and below and no more high humidity monsoon!

What all of this means is I can look forward to getting out and painting plein air again. My wife, Gloria, and I have spent the spring looking for a house to buy and have accomplished that. We now live in Surprise, AZ about 30 miles from downtown Phoenix, We have spent the summer furnishing and getting settled in our new home including my new studio.

I am sooo looking forward to getting back to a regular routine of creating art.
