It's September now and its time to bring out that wonderful gold vase of mine that I love to paint. Where did this hot summer go? Of course where I live we will have hot weather until at least October. I still didn't have enough beach time this summer. I guess it was better then the last 2 years since I didn't even make it to the beach. Anyway this painting has that autumn feel with the golds, olives, and reds.
