September 2014 Art Journal - Page 113 WATERMARK

2014 DAILY ART JOURNAL – The weather in San Diego has been brutal this year.  We’ve never had 90 degrees at the coast & it’s lasted for weeks & weeks.  I’m eating cold watermelon & drinking iced Embergen-C while creating paintings of Japanese Kokeshi dolls & then the actual wooden dolls!  (More to come!).  Thank goodness at the end of the week the coastal fog returned along with cooler weather & after labor Day, the tourists are gone!
