The last Summer Of Color post

I worked on these on Friday but am barely posting them now.

There was a power outage and then the scanner was acting up and then my computer’s charger went out again.

These are all valid excuses, but in reality? Maybe I was just a little sad to do the last Summer of Color 2 inspired blog post? It’s been a heck of a lot of fun and I’ve visited so many, many wonderful artists over the past six weeks.

There is one thing that fills me with a little relief however.

This was a Summer of Color 2…I’m going to tell myself that surely there will be a Summer of Color 3. That? Is something I can look forward to. ūüôā

This was our prompt for the week:

And this is the image that came to my mind and would not go away until I painted it.

I showed her to my mother and she absolutely hates it- but I’ve tried to explain that my fire lady is more super hero than demon. Or maybe super¬†villain…I don’t know she’s got a¬†feisty¬†temper,this one.

After I painted her I painted this in the recycled box journal that I made:

My mother likes this one much better.

Happy Last Summer of Color everybody I will be by shortly or maybe eventually is a better word? But I will be by to see every single one of you Si Dios Queire¬†as my momma would say.¬† (It means God Willing and is the term all God-fearing people of Spanish descent must say after making any kind of plans…lest they be struck down where they sit.)

On a slightly more cheery note: I absolutely love you guys and I’ve admired,been inspired, and I thank you for putting your arty goodness out there.
