So here we are at the beginning of July, & at last summer seems to have arrived- no wind, just blue sky & hot sun & the first cicadas are chirruping away- bliss!

Having been up the Lac de Ste Croix a few days ago I was captivated by that particular lucent blue which characterises the lake, & of course the sunlight on the trees, so couldn’t resist sending photos for the group to see as another project. Do feel lucky to live here in relative peace & quiet, & will be sending more local landscapes for those who are in the mood to portray in their own style- happy painting!
