Today is Thursday Art Date with Rain. This week the theme is "Heat Wave" I was born and raised in a hot and humid CA. city. When I was quite young I moved to S. Tahoe, from there to a cold and snowy NV. Then off to AK. From there N. ID. Right on the MT border and then here to OR. Now, in between all of that I lived in and loved AZ. The heat so high that the black of the street would melt. I loved hiking the desert, finding, arrow heads and crystal deposit. Going out and shooting not only my bow but target with a gun. (I am a crack shot with both) There is nothing like sitting out at night when the flaming day cools to some 20° and it is still scorching. The fragrance of the desert is so clean, the sky so black with millions of stars. The Coyotes singing to one another echos through the canyons. I thrive in that heat, in that desert, in that barren beauty. My heart lives in AZ. One day I will tell the story of why we had to leave. For now the memory of it brings me joy.
I told you all of that to say, heat waves haven't been in my world for many years. So painting them or creating some kind of heat wavy picture isn't fluid for me.
This is my abstract "Heat Wave"
One of my bead patter designs.
and here it is beaded
This is a wall sculpture I made several years ago.
It is highly coated and very shinny
It is 3-d and very heat wavish. LOL
The next 2 photos are close up of the thick and deep texture.

This is a painting I did that made me feel the desert.
I hope you enjoyed the "Heat Wave"
