Heat wave paintings

New paintings from my garden series. 99 to 102 degrees this week. Today, a mere 88 and the first time I could stand to be out on the sun porch and paint. Monarda (scarlet bee balm) with trumpet daylilies, and a huge Mullein to rival the stalky succulents and Echium in Golden Gate Park. The radicchio is bolting, offering up tiny blue flowers to the bees.

Monarda. Acrylic on canvas panel, 12″x9″ 2010

Mullein. Acrylic on canvas panel 16″x14″ 2010.

    You capture the intense heat with mastery! These would be great paintings to warm up a cold winter day.
