You know it is August when you see these lovelies!
I just absolutely am intrigued with these flowers! Although this year they were not as plentiful around town as I've seen in previous years. A couple of summers ago I planted some that were given to me in my mother's back yard. They did not come up the following year and she has since moved into her apartment and I find myself each August since wondering if they are up. The flowers come up over night the end of July, the first week of August and enjoy about 2 weeks of glory before they wilt and fade from the landscape.
This week in the studio I've been listless. Those thickened dyes I was worried about still sit in the fridge...it felt like too much effort, I couldn't even muster interest in my Mojo paper quilts which was the creative life line that got me going last time and the few days in Yellow Springs revved me up the last 2 weeks, but this week, blah.
I attempted to just push the feeling aside and at least do something! So I drew another sketch of America Shannon using crosshatch and made some doodles (see here) that I'll paint with opaque paints tomorrow should the blah-ness continue.
