Just some quick post shots into the ether of something the other that’s caught my eye 😊
Sometimes humorous. Sometimes serious. Sometimes baffling.
All as they effect me of course, but enough I wanted to share (retweet & post).
Sarah Loft was one of the first artists I came across I really liked on Twitter, this being more than several years back. She was/is part of a group of artists I first came to know via Fine Art America, actually, then on Twitter as I became more involved, and found more purpose in sharing art via that media source. I’ve watched and enjoyed and shared her work as she herself struggled with varying illnesses, never wavering in her commitment to both share hers and others’ work, plus remaining creative herself. That’s a mean (ie, difficult) feat to consistently exhibit. Her work that 1st caught my eye tended to be either, the play of light and shadow in otherwise mundane photos (thus transforming the capture), or reflections – reflections of light and things and people – on car windshields, puddles of water, sides of buildings, store glass. Just an amazing dexterity of eye and variety of variations. And lately, in a surprisingly natural progression, a development of her digital art work. As her Fine Art America page for this image states, “This image was created as a paper collage using pieces of old magazines. The scanned collage was digitally painted and a texture was added.” I chose this image for one main reason – I keep going back to look at it! 😊 Slowly, over many days, I’ve also begun to absorb it enough I think I can give a few other reasons why, at least for me, lol! I do think folks’ll find their own reasons too! As many art theorists say, it was the colors that’ll stop a viewer first, and I think that was definitely true here for me. The luxuriousness of the tones, and the delicate nuancing of shading and tints, all radiate of comfort and healing for me. Within those shadings and tints, as other art theorists say, it is the value balances of light and dark that satisfy and keep one there, viewing and viewing. So in a very real sense, she has continued what first caught my attention those years back – the play of light! Sarah Loft is an artist I enjoy viewing on both Twitter and Fine Art America. I hope you will too 😊
I hope you’ll “heart” ie, like, the tweet via the embedded tweet above, maybe even share or explore the person or group who tweeted to see if you find more you might like!
But most of all, I hope you enjoy, even if fleetingly 💕
Stay well & safe everyone!

- July 31, 2021 – Prepping a New 16×20 Acrylic, Working Title : Testing the WaterThe initial goal was to simply select and mark the area for my figure. Then I freely applied Golden’s light molding paste, leaving the selected area for my figure much more level, and forming the paste into potentially vegetative designs as inspiration and malleable ground meshed —
- July 30, 2021 – What a Difference a New Keyboard Makes : LENRICH iPad pro 12.9 case with keyboardThis is an older now discontinued keyboard, but one of the few still available for my IPad Pro 2nd generation model (current model is 5th generation I believe), but I’m impressed with it enough to post about it and (if all continues well) my renewed ease of use not having to use the onscreen keyboard for blog posts, emails etc – that’s a big deal for me, lol! 😊
- July 29, 2021 – Whew! Yesterday Was a Day of Plowing Through, lol!Above is a picture of me November 2019 (notice the weather is warm but hot, finally 😊) and I look just a bit worn out? I’d just climbed the 218 steps to top of Old Baldy near Wimberley Texas! That’s kinda how I felt yesterday, only without as nice a view, lol! I’ll just say that….
- July 28, 2021 – New 25×40 #Acrylic on Canvas In-Progress : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerA chore heat filled day where my keyboard evidently is deciding it’s had it, lol! Hopefully I finish this post 😊 Basically I started the groundwork for my newest painting, acrylic, wanting to settle on my composition before hand, unlike how I handled my just finished watercolor, same size, where I inserted my figure at the end.
- July 27, 2021 – 4 Weeks Running! My Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, Summer is a Lady : #Watercolor on Paper #ContemporaryImpressionismI’m sure I’ve had images repeat as most viewed 4 times in a row, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to that as I try to nowadays 😊 Summer is a Lady continues to simmer atop my selection of photos and artwork and illustrated poetry ♥️
- July 26, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New #Watercolor on Canvas Completed : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerI just took another look at my newly completed painting (above) to try for some settled sentiment I can include for my post, and I do have that – some settled sentiment. I’m still digesting and assimilating what this new work means to me. Though I know it’s incomplete, because I also know this work is more a conscious marker of where I want to head, and feel compelled to head toward, I do have a grasp enough to point out some things that are making themselves more known to me.
- July 25, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New Watercolor on Canvas in-progress, Developing the Right Figure to AddAs you can tell from my top pic, my efforts to progress from my value study and digital studies below are not going great, lol! I take solace from several things —
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
