Just a wild, crazy kind of day! 3 different carloads of friends dropped by. ‘Tis a rather jarring experience for an introvert like me. The self-isolation during the pandemic this past winter suited me just fine. I love zoning out in colors and shapes. In my few spare moments today I kept plugging away on this painting. Oh yes, and then there were blackberries, tomatoes and green beans to pick. And constant interruptions by 3 cats, demanding their treats. It was one of our nicest summer days (sunny, relatively cool, how humidity). I wanted to jump into the truck and go out plein air painting, but I kept nose-to-the-grindstone.
