After I finished my kitchen drawingI knew I wanted to do the “Tommy Lesson” in my garden. This has taken all week because I could only handle the heat for short periods of time. (Near 100º every day.) I worked early mornings and late evenings originally but wanted better light for color and shading. The sounds and smells were wonderful – bees, butterflies, lots of hummingbirds, nearby petunias and herb garden, sweat dripping off my face. One hummingbird kept zooming around checking me out and then sat on a tomato cage and watched me draw. I hate the heat of summer in the south, but love having the flowers, the colors, and the smells.
