It's so hot!

It's been too long since my last post. I've been very busy with work again. I am in the middle of several projects that I cannot share but I thought I'd re-post an old painting from awhile back.

The ice cream man brings back fond memories of childhood past and hot summer days. I called the weather line last night at 11:30 p.m. and it was 87 degrees and 87 percent humidity! Brutally hot and miserable but fairly typical for August in Missouri.

Looking so forward to cooler days in September.

Hey Phyllis! Your book looks delightful. Love the ice cream man as well. Sounds pretty good as a matter of fact. I really,really,really love your style! So adorable and sweet.

Miserable here in Chicago, too. Too hot to want to leave the house.

I have always loved this illustration, Phyllis. Love the point of view.

Thank you so much Jack! You made my day!

And thank you Kate, that means a lot!

Lovely illo!
I was thinking of ice cream as well for one of the IF-topics. Always delicious.
