Memories of Summer

The lingering memory of summer this year is of blistering heat waves of over 100° F./40° C. that kept me glued to the A/C.



And yet, my small sketchbook reminds me that there were many wonderful moments with family and friends. Leila Hejaiej, a singer of classical Tunisian music, gave an excellent concert in Tunis. 

I sketched the musicians in her orchestra...in the dark.  











Then we spent the 4th of July in Korba (a beach town on the Mediterranean) 












and attended a graduation celebration with local musicians. 

The high point of the summer was a week in Lisbon, Portugal at a beautiful hotel that has a statue of San Marcos in the entry




















The hotel breakfast was royal. 







                        


The parks and museums were lovely.                














And of course, the restaurants were excellent--wonderful food. 













I'm glad I keep my sketchbook handy, or I might have forgotten what a good summer it was.

What a great way to remember a beautiful summer. It has been really hot here too and I have enjoyed my summer, but I don't have any sketches to help me remember.

I am inspired because this is the year I have promised myself to go back to my watercolors. I have not been able to sit out in nature as it is so hot and humid and the mosquitoes are vicious.
