I painted this landscape a while ago, but didn't get a chance to post it. I believe the reference was a photo from Latin America - but I love arches of all kinds, and flowered makes them even more appealing to me!
My IT connection 'seems' to be back after two days and four hours on the phone with Tech Support and eight hours of 'waiting.' The signal and strength seem somewhat diminished, so I'm not jumping up and down until I'm sure the 'fix' is going to hold. Sigh. Frustrating indeed.
We had a pretty busy day yesterday - visited the farmer's market, cooked a bit for the herb presentation I will make Monday evening, I picked up the grands and my son joined us for a late dinner.
It seemed though like a day fraught with frustration, though - first my internet service, the farmer's market didn't have some items we needed for our planned dinner today, the stores we stopped in didn't have what we needed either, the library was closed due to renovations, and my son got caught in traffic on his way to dinner and missed the meal with the family! Some days .....! LOL
Today is C's jam and dinner with friends. The day is starting off better than yesterday ... thank heavens ... so fingers crossed.
I did manage to get in a plein air sketch, and will try to get to paint it today. Temps are supposed to reach close to 100F ... whew!
Stay cool ....
