Hot Hot Prickly Summer

Brooklyn TexasComment

With labor day just around the corner, we'd expect this concrete wall of heat to start to fade away and make room for a cooler and more pleasant fall, however, the hot weather has been relentless. We decided that instead of resenting this stronghold we would embrace it—taking advantage of our last few beach days, grilling in Prospect Park, frisbee at the Menil, and sweaty bike rides across Brooklyn. Inspired by the Texas plains and the window sills of trendy Brooklyn apartments, we bring you two painting honoring the plants that thrive and relish in heat like this.
