Dry Heat


10x8" oil on canvas (in my private collection)

Nearly everyone I tell that I've just returned from Tucson after moving my son into his dorm in 109 degree temperatures says, "Yeah, but it's a dry heat." --everyone! Like that makes it a refreshing afternoon in the desert. Well, I'm a weenie about heat and I did my share of whining. My son, however, well...he's a trooper. Not much rocks his boat. A few days after returning home I got a call from my brother-in-law in Kuwait where he reports the temperature tops 130 degrees. But guess what? It's a dry heat.

I used to live in Scottsdale (it's beautiful) but feel really lucky to live near the ocean in San Diego. Thanks for your kind words!

I love all of your paintings but the cactus is so delightful. I needed to boost the a/c just looking at this one!
