Old Man Wind.

The first pastel painting of the Flinders I finished and it ended up a Xmas gift to someone, am just happy they like it,  I haven’t finished the second one yet, so time to pull the proverbial  finger out and get stuck into it. We just had another couple of incredibly hot days, yesterday the heat was fierce, but how wonderful to be able to turn an air con on and cool the room down. I couldn’t believe it, a respite from the heat. Was glorious. My dog absolutely loved it also, and spent most of the day laying on the floor lapping it up.  I owe a huge thank you to someone who helped me get the air con, wouldn’t have been able to do it without their help, as pension doesn’t afford such luxuries, hope can sell more art to pay them back.  Early last night still nearly 40 degrees, the show of heat lightning was unreal, with the huge rolls of thunder to go with it. Must have been about 1 0r 2 am when the cool change came in properly,  boy did it come in a whoosh, instantaneous. My dog was laying near the front door, scared the crap out of him and myself,  he ran into my room, I ran out of it the same time, to see what the noise was, was old man wind absolutely  howling through.  What a noise, was a squall that just ripped through suddenly.

Today is heaven, with rain and about 24 degrees.
