watermelon girl

Watermelon is the theme for the last week of ice cream inspirations and is most perfect considering this horrend heat wave, here in Greece! the temps went up to 106F. not the most pleasant weather to be painting... but here is my BB girl, immersed in a huge watermelon to cool off!
A big thanks to Kristin for hosting this wonderful challenge :) this has been most fun :))
My goal for the next few weeks, is to prepare my journal, so I can take it with me to the Greek islands...sigh... sitting by the beach and painting... ohhhh can't wait!!
Hope you are having a great summer, my friend!


  1. Love your watermelon girl! Have a wonderful vacation. Hope it cools off some! The heat has been terrible in Missouri--over 100 almost every day. Brutal!

  2. Hi Joanna what a fab watermelon girl she made me smile when I logged on , your french poodle is super too well done Hugs Elaine

  3. This is fantastic, your watermelon girl must really be in fashion with weather like that! Today is the first warm day we have had for ages....Valerie

  4. Your Watermelon Girl has the right idea!
    How ever do you survive in such heat?
    Enjoy the beach. Happy summer to you.

  5. Loving your gorgeous Watermelon Girl. Its a joy to see your fab artwork. x

  6. Oooh, it sounds perfectly wonderful! Art journaling on the beach! I hope you have a wonderful time! AND again - I missed this one - How? I am so sorry, she is absolutely lovely! I LOVE her, xoxo

  7. She is such a cutie! Love her. AND...the Greek Islands sound like perfection to me right now!!! :)

  8. I woke up today to a very heavy rainstorm,looked out of the window to see the remaining flowers gone.Your blog pictures made me smile again

  10. Hi, Joanna. I agree, water melon is a great subject for the heat. Lovely piece. You're quite courageous to paint in the heat. I can only manage hand stitching while glued to the AC. 110 F in the shade today. Only my fingers can manage to move!
    best, nadia
