Summer HAS arrived in the Pacific Northwest!

And with a VENGEANCE!  Hoooooo-EEEEEEEEEE it is ever HOT!!  I have been waiting ever so patiently for ‘good painting weather to arrive’ and it just NEVER came?!?!  We went from WET spring weather to HOT summer.  A few sunny days here and there prior to this, but never long enough to drag several projects outside to work on at the same time and not have to put them back in every night.  

I just do NOT do well in the heat anymore.  I’ve been keeping wet wash cloths in the frig and grab one to wrap around my neck as I head outside to do a little painting.  I last maybe 10 minutes, head inside for a new cold cloth and cool of for 15-20 minutes before I venture outside again.  

The paint sure DRIES fast in this weather; that’s for sure!
