Day 72 at Home: First Heatwave of the Year

What does the temperature have to be for you to call it a heatwave? I think 90 F/33 C is when I start to find it hot enough to be a heatwave. And today hit a respectable 97. Not quite 100, which makes it seem like a totally authentic heatwave, but still…

I tried to capture how hot it was in the stupor of the poses, in how useless and still the fan looks and in the blinding light outside.

The app my husband check daily temperature on says tomorrow is a couple of degrees hotter. My app says a couple cooler. I say it’s always better when I am right 😉

    You know, I think there’s really a special sense of depth that results in your work with this very restrained neutral palette. That seems counter-intuitive, yet I had the same reaction to the view out your front window last week. I love color, but I like this a WHOLE lot too.

    These drawing say so much. Your kids seem to be melting away. Stay cool Suhita.

  3. You captured the melting-in-the-heat really well. Your poor kids look worn out. Though drained by the heat, this painting is alive.
