It is a real scorcher today. There was not a bit of breeze even early in the morning when I left home. I was able to feel the humidity in the air. Moreover, the road construction workers had already been busy working to resurface the street. Their heavy machinery made the deafening noise which seemed to make the humidity more intolerably sticky. I didn't know why noise could worsen the skin sensation. Maybe it was synesthesia. Anyway, I didn't feel like going too far. So I crossed the street to the Forest Park. Finding a spot near the street, I immediately set up and paint.
