Fires are polluting the air and make our life sad and miserable. But what a beautiful evening we had in terms of colors and light swimming in all the smoke and smog... It's very hard to capture and pretty hard not to wish it would stay longer... I am not happy about the shapes and composition here but something in the way paint interacted with the paper worked just right for me...
it was a very hot day - but fountain in the park was on and sand was wet and there was a whole lake in it to get wet and ... well, here we are taking a break from all the wetness and sand ;)

I was 3 spreads away from the back cover and very happy about the paper and such - when new paper arrived (this Wednesday) with wonderful lighter paper I ordered and one sheet of a nice paper I did not order (I haven't tried drawing-painting on it yet but it made it to this journal so if it's any good I am sure it will become a new quest - to find out what it was!
So this new treasure of mine has 90 lb. Fabriano Artistico HP and CP (2 signatures each) and a black cat :)
