Every day is the first day of the rest of your life....

A few days ago it was my pleasure to deliver 'Yesterday's Tomorrows' to a couple I know from Salton City who had retired to Mexico.  They commissioned me to create a variant on two former paintings for pride of place in their home.  Of course being a larger painting, it required delivery. Also, this gave the opportunity to perform any last-minute tweaks to colors.  
It also almost gave me the opportunity to kill one of their cats who decided that this new flat surface in the garage (the finished painting lying on a table, with the glaze drying) needed to be explored by jumping up on it.  Fortunately I was right there and swatted the feline away without damage to either.
So for my four-day stay on the sunny Pacific coast, I thought maybe just maybe this desert rat should pack long pants in case the evenings were cooler.  Only the first day was warm enough for shorts.  Below is the view as I write this in the club house of the condo where I was staying. 

The staff member is cleaning an (unheated) infinity pool just under the window.
So, back in the desert,  and "points north", July is going to be a busy month.  Please feel free to forward this email to friends you may have in the areas my events are taking place - and don't forget to check out my new work on the front of my website.  One follow up from last month, Grant Bentley's cd 'Departures and Arrivals' is now available (it has my artwork on the cover) to download.  I just finished listening to it. My favorite track is 'Day of Goodbyes'.
