Now that summer is unofficially here, it's time to turn our attention outside! Look out the window - from your kitchen, studio, or porch, and paint what you see. There's almost always something going on these days. The birds are feeding, the pets are romping, kids are trespassing. Let's paint it, tell a bit about what was happening, and then go outside to enjoy it.
This is a painting of my cat sitting in my well-tended flower box, waiting for me to let him inside. He couldn't care less that it is a glorious day behind him. He just wants in. Now.
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
