Well, The Fourth of July has come and gone and the fireworks have stopped in the alley near by.  The weather is extremely muggy and doing watercolor in humidity with mosquitoes is challenging.  I can't even show the last two paintings so the only new painting is the one of my two studio 4 mates, Ginny and Barb. Today and tomorrow I am packing up paintings to take to Cal deRuyter's studio on Christina Lake north of Evansville west of Alexandria, MN.  This will be an Art tour and I recommend the tour highly.  It is such fun to travel the blue highways in western MN around farmlands and lakes to artist's studios.  What can I say,  It is a blast.  I hope you all can come out that way for a big treat.  Bye for now.  Emmy
