Phew! Think cool thoughts...it's the Spanish Plume
My dear old Dad used to say that when it's hot, imagine cool water - anything will do, a river, a waterfall, a lake... well here are three little oil paintings I recently put up for auction, and sitting here in the shuttered semi-dark, trying to think cool, I have been looking at the scenes on the computer screen, and do you know, it's beginning to work...
You can read about them here and here (one is already sold) and they are all from villages in the Pyrenees, where today it is only 34 degrees c, poor things...
It was 39.5c on our well-head this morning...it's too hot even to go and fetch in the washing - all my daughter's red teeshirts - and yes, I did remember to hang them up inside-out so the sun doesn't fade them so quickly. Unfortunately, I accidentally left in a piece of white linen in the washing machine and now it's the colour of rose-pink...
