“‘If we do not make significant change right now then we are going to be in a situation within the next week to two weeks where I’m going to have to make the recommendation to the mayor and judge that we shut down,’ Austin Public Health interim Medical Director Dr. Mark Escott said at a news conference Wednesday.”
Austin has quickly reached a crossroads of choices that may or may not prevent the city and area from having to shut down again.
I won’t elaborate on the details of this relatively short but quote and information filled article, but encourage you to read the wide level of doctors within the area with differing jurisdictions expressing connecting aspects of the crisis brewing in Austin.
The mandatory mask order by Mayor Adler (just recently allowed to all Texas mayors by the governor) has, from what little Sheila and I have seen in class at the gym, and in the grocery and drugstore, has already had the significant impact of reducing folks willing to be out and inside stores etc without a mask.
Clearly felt is that a full shut down is still avoidable, is further measures are both taken, and enforced. The demographic of the folks now being admitted in growing numbers to the area hospitals, the article says, has significantly changed.
I myself, due to a flare up of my year round allergies, and the imminent arrival of a huge dust cloud from the Sahara Desert here in Texas the next few days, chose not to venture into downtown with art for the summer consignors’ art gallery show at the Old Bakery and Emporium. Not a decision I lightly made, but just couldn’t convince myself it was the right thing for me to do right now.
Hope to have new reviews of more mystery shows, like The Brokenwood Mysteries, up soon! Plus pics of more newly uploaded watercolor paintings to Fine Art America.
Stay well everyone ❤️

- The Old American Artist by Felipe Adan Lerma – Twitter Excerpt SeriesLooking back at older work, like my 80s acrylics or 2000s water soluble oils, can be lots of things : sobering 😂 and, when I spot patterns of motifs or preferences in my work, very helpful for me, enabling me to see enduring patterns of interests. The same, it turns out, even with its own variations, is true for other art forms I’ve worked out most my life, like writing, whether patterns of expression and beliefs within my blog posts, or, in the case of The Old American Artist – a semi-autobiographical literally fiction-like novella, connections right back to my most enduring focus. Art ❤️
- My Return to Regular Pricing @FineArtAmerica July 2020It’s been a few months since I started my $1 pricing markup experiment on Fine Art America.
