Flowers roasted by the Sun ~ Digital painting ~ Will this horrible heat wave ever ever end??? The heat index the last couple days here has been over 110 degrees and will be the same tomorrow. I am so glad we have AC and I wonder and worry about those that don't. It seems like the whole eastern U.S. is being baked in an oven. Those poor animals out there.. but they seem to know how to survive the outside temps. I remember when I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter and we had just moved here to Virginia from Florida. It was August and we didn't have AC then and I remember sitting all day with my feet in a bucket of water to try to keep cool. Well, I'll be complaining about the cold a few months from now so I may as well try to enjoy it! :D

Digital painting?! I like it and the title also.

Well, at the first look, it appears like fried egg yolks surrounded by chocolate sauce - I could almost feel the heat from here.

OH Terri I just read about your dog and I am so so sorry! We lost our dog last summer and it's a very painful thing to go through. My thoughts are with you and your family.
