summer paintings

One of these pictures was painted every year at my kitchen table. It was always July—the tiger lilies were in bloom, and the hydrangias. The last few years there have been no paintings, because I haven't been on the island in July. The watercolors faded. But this year Neruda took them away and freshened them all with new paint. They are stacked now in the new house, awaiting walls.
