Here, where I live, we’re heading into summer, which, in the middle of the United States, involves occasional thunderstorms and scorching hot sunny weather. At least that’s how I would describe it as an adult. As a kid, it meant a summer break from school and thousands of possibilities for things I could try next!
So, even though I’m not a fan of a day so hot one could fry an egg on the sidewalk, I adore approaching summer like a kid again. The days are also a bit longer, which makes it feel like there’s more time to DO things! And the best part about this time of year, no matter what season it might be where you live, is that next month it’s time once again to celebrate World Watercolor Month in July! I hope you’ll save the date and join me for the official month-long celebration of watercolor, and the 31 watercolors in 31 days challenge supporting arts education and The Dreaming Zebra Foundation. It’s a wonderful time of year that makes me feel endlessly inspired as I enjoy a bit of time each day, painting summer.
