I know, it has nothing to do with botanical art, but it’s been so hot and humid, that I felt duty-bound to let you know that today, Saturday, August 6 is National Root Beer Float Day.

A Root Beer Float might be a refreshing incentive to keep working on your art. I usually have tissue down to protect the areas of my artwork, and I wear light cotton gloves with the fingers cut off. It’s been so sticky and humid, however, that I’m now also laying a folded cotton tea towel under my arm and hand.

Add your tips to working in hot, humid, sticky weather in the comments section please. And enjoy a Root Beer Float and your art!
