August Journal Sketches Pam Little September 11, 2013 More welcome rain - a respite from the forest fire smoke. Cool enough that I felt like taking the dogs for a hike. Mixed media watercolor and Micron pen. A little alpenglow. Very crispy balsam root. More hot and sleepy pets. The sun appears as a red ball when viewed through forest fire smoke. Jem sunbathes on the couch. Closeups done using Papilio binoculars. Wasp invasion starts - The wasps were certainly trying to get to our salmon while it was getting smoked! One little cloud and a few drops of rain. Waiting for another of Jem's chemo. treatments. Our late bloomer squash vine grows down the outside stairs.
