Morning...with no sign of rain! #469

Daily painting #469 4"x6" oil on primed canvas panel

I was awake so early this morning. It was hot and sticky and I had been plagued by one lonesome    mosquito all night! Quite frankly I am convinced there is nothing more torturous or detrimental to your sanity than one little mosquito making sport of dive bombing your ears in the night! So I was up with the sun....it looks like the heat is continuing and no sight of any rain clouds. One of the dams up north, Hazelmere Dam, which feeds the water supply to most of the northern suburbs is sitting at 35%  full and all these areas are on severe water restrictions. We are in desperate need of some rain up country to full the rivers and dams again. It would also be great to have a respite from the heat. I am dreaming of standing outside in rain.....but it doesn't look like any is heading our way just yet! Today is going to be another hottie!
