Summer days are here in the LowCountry of South Carolina. It's great to be outdoors, despite the bugs. This was painted en plein air, while I enjoyed beautiful weather, and a cool breeze. As I was finishing my work, I looked down to see a red ant hill. Yikes, red ants bite and leave a terrible, ugly rash! Some outdoor painters have taken to carrying dryer sheets with them. Apparently they are especially good at keeping bugs, and chiggers away. The funny thing is that I don't use dryer sheets with my laundry, but will now add them to my art bag. I hope everyone has a nice weekend, with beautiful weather.
