Excuse me for having nice weather, while I know many of you are suffering under extreme heat.  I count my blessings. 

I made an extra effort to work on my plein air at the lake this year.  

I'll try to photograph the handful of pastels I completed over the holiday, and post them here, soon.  Happy vacations, everyone.

Bob Dylan has something to say about summertime, too.

Very beautiful. I both like the simplicity of it, and your superb choice of colors.

Celeste Bergin said...

agree with Dan...it is a haiku!

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Dan. I appreciate your comments!

Celeste: I always wanted to write poetry, and especially Haiku. Many thanks!

Looks like you created a nice shady spot for your painting, You've painted the essence of the trees -- a zen painting! Lovely.

Thank you, Kvan! My in-laws' cabin at Deer Lake is a great retreat.
