Featured Images Change
As I’ve developed various series, most named for being about photo-poems, Fine Art America pics, paintings, or photography, etc, they remained fairly self explanatory, with featured images reflecting the posts’ contents.
With more recent series, like My Day Ahead, I gained simplicity of day to day posting, for awhile, but lost the specificities, over time, as the series continued, of what the nuance, or subject of the day was all about.
Even in my current series, Covid-19, the same thing’s happened.
My solution, since it appears the virus is to be with us for awhile, and it’s importance transcends any desire to simply let it go, has been to replace the repeating featured image (unless there’s no pic or pic I want to feature), and, add subtitles to the blog title.
And the series name’s changed slightly, from “Aging Through Covid-19” to “Aging Gracefully – During Covid-19” — each with specific sub-titles.
Plus doing plain ole standalone titles, like A Walk Among the WildFlowers – New Watercolor on Absorbent Ground, May 2020 .
Now, as you can see via the top two screenshots, it’s very easy for me, and a reader, to scroll to and click on a visual, or titled, topic of interest! 😊
Adding Subtitles to Series
And as you can see in the two screenshots below, the same is also true of my own WordPress working page for my posts.
As I mentioned in a recent post, Aging Gracefully – During Covid-19 – A New Series, Serial Series’, this will have many benefits I believe, for me and the reader — continuity with nuance!
And though at first glance the “pre” on my Posts Page dashboard (right side image) appears cleaner, the sub-titled left-side image version gives me – and the reader/visitor on my site – much more easily seen information what the post is about, art or fitness and such.
I’d like to update earlier previous series I’ve had but’ll have to see about the usual challenge, time 😊
Meanwhile, let me know what you think of the change, your reader view of what you see now, and how you imagine your dashboard page of your posts might feel with the difference.
Remain well all, stay creative! ❤️

- September 20, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” Still Not Done, But, Already a Learning Tool For Me!“Learning Tool for Me” is part of my blog title today simply ’cause I’ve looking at this post as specifically geared to get me where I wanna go – keeping in mind my destination is a generalized abstraction of image / feeling / and intuitive aspiration (hopefully including figurative work) & it’s reached a point of development over my previous renditions that I now need to put my resolve into concrete, hopefully creative, useful thoughts for my future directions. Lot of contradictions. Like life. Like me 😊 Here goes (for now) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!

They’re short, tight with information. What will take a little time, if you notice the time 😊 is….
- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
- September 14, 2021 – Playing with 4K Video to Grab Still ShotsNow that we’ve had our bird feeder up a few months at our new location, we’ve come across a wider variety of birds (and other critters) and’ve been working at grabbing shots of birds in motion I might could use for sketches and such 🦅
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
