What is better than lounging around on your chaise lounge, in the sun, on a holiday weekend? Well, of course, lounging around on your chaise lounge, in the sun, on a holiday weekend...Painting!!! Oh what an experience this was for me....Notes to self:  1) watercolors behave much differently in the blazing hot sun, 2) colors are very different in the bright sun as compared to the studio (especially if you aren't wearing sunglasses, and 3) you get a funny tan lines "sun bathing" and painting at same time.
