Backyard still life

Busy preparing classes and teaching. Result:  Drawing has slowed considerably; oil painting has essentially stopped. Temporary but necessary. I draw outside as much as I can, but we are having an “Indian Summer” in Scottsdale with above normal temps for late September. I just finished this drawing. It’s 5:30pm and 109◦F (almost 43◦ C). Good thing I was next to the pool.  🙂   I will pick up the outdoor drawing when the average daytime temps fall below 100 (38C).
