July flew by so quickly, that I only realized yesterday that the first day of August was a Tuesday. And then I realized that there were five Tuesdays this month so that was my inspiration for art this month, the number 5.

The Mountain of the Five Cataracts by Chen Hongshou (1625)

I also learned that the cataract in the title refers to “a descent of water over a steep surface; a waterfall, especially one of considerable size.” Thanks, Dictionary.com
