Endless Summer

Well - as we head into yet another week of sweltering heat, there will be no sympathy for those who complain about the rain when it finally comes in the next few months, I'm sure.  For me, I am happy when it rains - it must be the British thing, I guess - though I have to admit, this has been a gorgeous Summer in the City.  After the thunderstorms and fireworks on Saturday night, I am feeling a little inspired to tackle another painting with fireworks - but have always struggled to capture the fleeting movement of the lightbursts.  Fireworks seem intrinsically linked with Summer in Vancouver now, so I think I owe it to my portfolio to have another go, so watch out for that at some stage.

This week I am doing my final preparations for the Harmony Arts Festival Show starting on Friday July 31st at 4.00pm at Ambleside, West Vancouver.  I am finishing a few smaller originals for the show and will also have a good selection of my gallery pieces and smaller items there.  Unfortunately, the 2010 calendar will not be ready for this show, but hopefully by the end of August - I have just run out of time to get it done early this year.  I promise it'll be worth the wait!

What I'm listening to this week:  Elbow - "Cast of Thousands", "Leaders of the Free World" , Cafe del Mar Volume 14, Sarah Vaughan Sings Broadway.
