watercolors :: citrus

I love summer.

Love.
Love.
Love.

I used to hate the heat and, frankly, I still kinda do.  But it's so nice to have your body completely engulfed in warm air.  I've been trying to run every morning.  I really despise running.  Except, I love the feeling of ending a long run.  Unfortunately, running when it's 95 degrees out is awful.  Fortunately, there's a great breeze that comes off the bay when I run down Bayshore.

I normally do a little cool down walk before coming inside the house.  My routine is to change out of my workout clothes and slip into a light dress (or robe) to cool off and slice a large grapefruit.

Citrus just tastes that much better in the summer.

Inspired by summer (and not painting as much when I'm at school) and by my morning citrus ritual, I decided to paint some citrus!!!








Mouth watering yet?
