It has not been as hot as it can be here in the south part of the USA. I have been in the comfortable studio working on an new series of art. I am calling it Artist on Safari. It will include many pieces native to Africa that I have never painted before such as Wildebeests and Cape Buffalo. One piece is nearly finished a 3' x 4' of a cape buffalo. Also have a large one of two lions chasing eachother. July I was able to participate in a show in Fort Smith, Arkansas, called Art on the Border. Enjoyed meeting old friends and making new ones there.
In November 17th, from 1-4 pm, I will be at Michael's Mansion in Fort Smith, Arkansas, for their monthly 3rd Sunday Art Show. I plan to debut some of the new pieces there.
Things slow down here just a a bit when the heat index rises, so I have enjoyed the time to be painting. I have also been taking in videos of African Wildlife to familiarize myself to the species there. I am fascinated by the size and abilities many of them have.
