I had to stop doing the final touches on the "fish camp" picture because the darker colors were bleeding through.........so, I began roughing out the figure painting of the three kids at the beach. After days of the local weather reports plugging tropical storm Beryl, we are at last getting an abundant amount of rain. I should have gone painting outside yesterday but stayed in due to the forecast and wished I hadn't paid attention. Today, I marinated steak for the grill because I doubted that the storm would materialize and now I must cook in a downpour. So be it.
