Balmy


How about a little "balminess" - certainly I could benefit from a bit of sun, warm air and some sort of concoction with one of those pretty little umbrellas.
Many people live in tropical climates all year but I am truly more of a "Four Seasons" gal, so my little get-away is to draw a place I'd love to be.  To feel my feet in the sand and to wear an open toe sandal in the middle of Winter, now that sounds like a last resort.

My art has always provided me with my own little travel agency right at my fingers.  I can be transported anywhere in a matter of minutes and there is "no bother" with any annoying airport security and alas, no wrinkles from too much sun.   That said, I can always design and draw myself a brand new hat.
Shall I reserve a lounge chair for you?

LOL LOL LOL! yeah, where's the cabana boy? :-)

Hmm, yes, please reserve a chair for me - I am way too pale and need to recover some of the "oliveness" of my skin! :-)

Now where did that cabana boy go?
Good help is so hard to find these days.
Now- please pass the sunscreen....

Lovely sketch, Patricia! It's in the 80's here today. I went for a bike ride. BTW,there are lots of cabana boys here, trouble is, most are too feeble to get out of their chairs - and about 87! LOL

That sounds heavenly. I'll have a chair by the pool and an icy Marguerita, please.
