Time Is Short...Last minute things

I'm still working on a number of paintings and drawings and hope they'll be dry in time for the show. The weather was so hot for a couple of days, though it's usually cool in the studio, it got kind of hard to work.

And right where I was standing, because it's this time of year and the hornets were out, I was having quite a time of it, grabbing things from my car and getting inside without the bees. You'll  notice one of these when you drive down the driveway. It always puts me in a state of mind; a reminder to slow down. 

The perfect speed.

Here's a sample of a work in progress from the "horses in mustard" series I'm in the middle of.
