The Northwest is burning. Hot smoky summers are expected annually. Unless the judiciary gets involved, it`s nearly impossible to imagine the political will to act on global warming. It will take a catastrophe. Winston Churchill said America will always do the right thing, but only after it`s tried everything else.
Summer is slowly closing down, the angle of the light is taking on a hint of autumn.
Here is a watercolor of the season done by the late genius David Levine. Better known for his caricatures of the famous, he was also a fabulous painter. Somehow I became aware of his work early in my life and I learned a lot about the medium by studying reproductions of his. Coney Island was his muse. I`ve never been there but know exactly what it is like.
