Shaking up my art offers 🎨
Today, the first full day not taking antibiotics in two weeks – I changed the pricing on all my prints and gift items, plus my licensing offers – all the items I have control over at Fine Art America!!!

Yes, deserved 3 exclamation points, lol! 😊

And, I’ve created my first stand along post since March 21st to show a little more about it!

Yesterday I mentioned Sheila & I practiced a little social distancing-real presence visiting with our youngest girl and her husband and of course the 7 year old, Max ❤️ Also a 1st in what now seems a very long time.

He went in the house while Grandma and I hid Easter eggs around the back yard, and once he’d come back out he hunted ‘em all down. Near the end of the hunt I took an iPhone telephoto shot with him showing us the new chrysalis’ growing in their carefully cultivated garden 🦋 😊

Stay steady everyone, I know it’s a struggle, or at least is for us 😂

Maybe the country, and us, are also in chrysalis ❤️

Suggested link, Dr Mirkin poses and answers the question – Why You Should Exercise During the COVID-19 Pandemic, a short important read – . Included in the article is a welcome needed caution-reminder re “over exertion” and our immunity cells.

Do you have good, positive, useful or encouraging info to share? Please post in the moderated comments below 😊

Note: Each time I post while doing this series (may it be a short series, but if so, for positive reasons 😊), I’ll post one or more links to posts I feel are worth seeing or reading. Some will be COVID-19 specific, some just uplifting, some encouraging via exercise or nutrition etc, but all within the rubric of what we’re all facing tougher ❤️

    Easy Morning, new watercolor on absorbent ground 6×6 gallery wrap canvas #figureart My newest figure work had the usual tug and pull process painting it 😊 I really like the soft gentle feel of it, and especially like the look my wife got seeing it ❤️
  • At Rest With Nature – New Watercolor on Absorbent Ground, May 2020
    At Peace With Nature has several firsts for me. One, it’s a 5×7 stretched canvas, another size like my recent 6×12, A Walk Among the Wildflowers, I haven’t done in quite awhile, certainly even further back by maybe even decades, lol! It’s an interesting size, being small, yet enabling and enhancing the sense of length or height, like the 6×12, but more subtly.

    Personal Transitions During Stay-at-Home Distancing No BIG in the typical sense of what I tend to think “big” life change/transitions are, but with no blog post for 5 or 6 days, I gave up figuring out the exact # of days, lol, I felt compelled to say a little something.

    Photo Lessons for Dummies by BE KITSCHIG is a superb humor laden look at the all too common pitfalls and inadvertent mistakes we all non-professionals make with our cameras 😂
  • A Walk Among the WildFlowers – New Watercolor on Absorbent Ground, May 2020
    As one can tell by my photo below, I took a few liberties, but to some extent, that happens whether I plan it or not, lol 😂 But I like the result too much to alter anything on it. Another version, another time, will elicit a different response, and I do think this is one motif I’ll want to do more of, vs variations for just practice 😊
  • Aging Through Covid-19, May 20, 2020
    A bit of news out of my home state of Texas. For the past decade, the two main political parties of that state have battled in and out of court in regard to things vote related. Actually seemingly everything vote related, lol!
  • Covid-19 Visit to Lady Bird Wildflower Center May 2020 💐
    First trip I can think of for Sheila & myself, much less with Max, since maybe pre-Covid! 💕 Short, less than 2 hours, and less than 15 minutes from home, but what a treat! 😊

Thanks again, everyone! 😊

    • Lael, I do too! We’re incubating into a much more beautiful better society! Eventually, lol! ❤️ And yes, wife and I wanted to give him huge hugs, and he wanted to too – so tough to hold back from a little one – but we got to see each other and feel close! So glad you got to see your Grands! 💕 😊
