That's August in Florida. It is very humid as well. The weather is sticky with thunderstorms every afternoon. Sometimes, I like the thunderstorms. If they aren't too violent, I will sit on my porch and watch the show. I live on the ocean, so the lightening can be very impressive.

I got my H2O water colors out and painted a sheet of 300 lb. cotton rag. I saturated the colors to represent the colors in the sky at sunset. Then I added some tangles in white. The center tangle is ING the new tangle by Molly at It looks like the lightening in the evening sky. This paper is rough and difficult to draw on, but I love the way it takes the paint. Unfortunately, you cannot see the mica reflections in the colors as a photo.
