High Tail Heat - running arabian mare painting

9 X 9 oil on masonite $115
Includes shipping and insurance

It's really hard NOT to use warm colors during this heat wave in Texas. This is a friend's Arabian mare - feeling frisky and not wanting to be caught. I was amazed she had so much energy in 100+ degree weather.

Our pastures are crispy and I am concentrating on watering trees now - the grass will have to survive on its own now. Mike mowed yesterday and I asked him to feed the clippings to my horses. I had been putting them on the garden as mulch, but there's not much left to protect there, either - a few cantaloupe and the deer-nibbled sweet potatoes.

It's almost time to plant a fall garden, but for the life of me, I can't see how anything will get a start in this heat. There is cool front and rain north of here this afternoon, though, along the Red River. I pray it makes it south to us. Please, God?

Isaiah 58:11
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
