Double-checked my review post of the French bio film, Renoir. A beautiful deceptively complex movement within the film of the many layers surrounding the seeming simplicity of Renoir’s art in his latter years 😊
Projected to be a little warmer today, with sunshine.
With that, not much to complain about going to Central Market for – initially, walnuts and fresh rolls of garlic sourdough bread – a list that’s grown to over a dozen items. But, ever so yumming-ly 💕
Time to change the clocks, again. Another time change. I don’t like them. I say keep the time at one or the other settings, and let us live our lives, lol!
Hopefully work some more on my old painting, In the Light. Spoke a little about this in a recent post. How I’m experimenting, well, trying to experiment, with enhancing a previously finished painting I’d like to be a little more – wish me luck! I’m documenting the changes, for better or worse 😊 Individually, each change is relatively subtle. As a whole, it should be a much more dynamic work. More importantly, dynamic in a way that says to me it really is better. So it’s a slow (re)work in progress, tiny touches, shadings, highlights.
Beyond that, hopefully see Sheila start to get better from a bad cough and congestion ♥️
Always a strange day after having the youngest grandchild w/us and seeing him off again w/his parents to do all those things so wonderful for his life there also. Wife & I can rest a bit more, but not sure it’s worth the trade-off of not having him around 😊
The same thing happened in July a few years back when we had the oldest girl’s 3 girls stay with us for a whole week! It was back when Sheila & I could still not only do the drive to Houston, but did two round trips, picking them up plus taking them back. But again, so worth those too short but wonderful memories. Could really feel their absence when we took them back home ❤️
And then there was our oldest granddaughter, who stayed with us many a day and night for many years, and also one day moved on to become a young lady. She since graduated from college and even spent a semester as an exchange student in Paris!
Part of the process. And who knows, maybe this last one, this time around, may linger with us even longer before growing his wings 💕

I do like to point out I pick my selections to showcase from my Amazon searches. May not always be the case, or wholly always the case, but for now, I prefer picking titles and book covers and gift items that just really appeal to me. There’s lots more to choose from, but only have so much room, lol! I hope you enjoy —

- Painting Update – My Lost Edges and Masking Fluid Ideas 02.18.20This weekend, I reblogged two really interesting articles on the aesthetic or idea of employing lost edges, where the boundaries of given recognizable objects meld into the color space around it (side plane, background, etc). I’d already haphazardly begun working with the idea, wondering if I was off-base to even be considering it, when I … Read more
- Painting Looser III: Chasing the Lost … and Found Edge via Caroline Buchanan Watercolors“Lost and found edges normally don’t just happen. You must plan. And you must use restraint. It is MUCH EASIER to complete an edge than to lose and find it.”
- The Power of Understatement (Lost Edges) via Dianne Mize Studio Feb 2020“In the 1960's I attended an art show in which hung a huge mural size painting showing as its content the total of three words: "Say Everything Completely". I rebelled against that message then and I bristle at it now. The reason is that in my work, a part of my personal aesthetic is understatement.”
Thanks so much everyone! 😊
