Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

Water! Water is life. We've had a very hot and dry summer here in Texas. The other day I was out near one of the inlets at Lake Travis and it was completely dry - had grass growing in it in fact. People's docks were dangling off the hillsides. We've had a lot of rain lately, but the lake levels are still very low (~50 feet still.) I've been enjoying these rainy days and welcome them, knowing we're finally putting this brutal summer behind us. But there are good memories to go along with summer, like the sprinkler park I've painted below!

Robin, I love your sprinkler painting: so alive and vibrant and FUN. The little guy contemplating participation reminds me of my own kids and one little friend in particular. (He's now all grown up with his own business.)

Great job, Girl! I really enjoy your work.

Robin, saw your painting initially on Suzanne Berry's blog, and was just saying I can really appreciate it because we have one of those kid fountains across the street from me in Brooklyn.

Your painting conveys so well how much the kids love those fountains, a sight which brings me a lot of joy throughout the summer months!
