What The Heck Moments…..

Whew, when the weather is wet and cold we hanker for the long, hot days of summer….now, after weeks of hot, humid sunshine, we are longing for rain…

At times the heat has been oppressive, stultifying…hampering my creativity…

So I have been trying to jolly myself along…trying to ignite that flame….

..beginning by having a sort out of my watercolour tubes…trying out colours…..

….with no plan in mind, just doodling….but they somehow remind me of the hedgerows that are beginning to wither, shrivel….

I also had a ‘what the heck’ moment…you know the sort, where you just throw everything at a work….


….and somehow, something half decent emerged…and I was reminded of this quote from Edgar Degas – ‘Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things’…

Now I am not saying it’s a masterpiece…but I rather like it, and to that end will mount it, call it ‘Summer Heat’ and take it to the Festival…..

Perhaps I should have a few more ‘What the heck’ moments…
