Summer Sun

” Spring has sprung…
  Fall has  fell….
   Summer is here and it is hotter then hell”
Something my children used to say when they were younger.
In reality it is 62 degrees and raining.

Something comes over us in summer….
A different way of seeing….
Things are warm and bright, even if they aren’t…
We become more optimistic, 
Aware of  bright future in spite of all evidence to the contrary.

Maybe it goes back to humanities origin in Africa.
Maybe we have a genetic disposition for light and warmth.
Maybe, as artists, we just need light to create.

In any event, here is some summer sun for you.
Happy 4th of July holiday!
