Summer days, summer nights began with an acrylic painting I did on my front porch during a balmy summer evening in Florida. The grill was going, my boyfriend was playing blues guitar and a warm breeze blew from the Gulf of Mexico. I was inspired by the finished painting to create a mock magazine spread on summer music. I wanted to keep the layout simple, clean and inviting. The headline, Summer days, summer nights came to me from a Bob Dylan lyric.
