The thing I miss the most about Denver is definitely the summer thunderstorms. It's nice that the beach is here...but not when "May Gray" and "June Gloom" have turned into "Fogust"... I haven't heard of one for July, but that was cloudy too. Now if it was thunderstorming here I wouldn't have a complaint at all :)
I was trying something a little different for today, I felt like maybe some of my paintings were too bright and I wanted to see what it was like to tone it down a bit. I'm trying to be more open to experimentation, because I know that's a great way to learn.....it's frustrating though.
