Its soooooo hot in the UK just now though. We are simply not prepared for it - let alone used to it, and the humidity some days is in the 90's. I went food shopping today, something I usually hate, I was in there for nearly 2 hours as it is the only place with air conditioning, total bliss. The hot weather causes a real battle of opinions too, those who love it call those of us who dont 'killjoys' and 'miseries' which I find very unkind, we cannot all enjoy the same things, can we?
My theory is that due to us all having such different metabolisms we react to extreme heat in different ways, so there are some who love it and it makes them and their body feel good, while others really cannot stand it and it makes them feel rotten. I am in the latter section, and maybe also being a 'woman of a certain age' does not help matters either.
So, as usual till this weather stops there will not be a great deal of art (or much else) happening here. The forecast does say it will break on Sunday, but not for how long.
Those who follow me on instagram will have seen the stages (@simjata) but here it is finally finished off.
The face was a sketch from my sketchbook, which I should have covered in clear gesso first and it would have taken the paint better, but I forgot as usual. As collage goes I am happy with this one and hope to do more in the future.
Once it cools down a bit:)
