Tweets That Caught My Eye on Twitter – Matthew Dowd @matthewjdowd #IndependentCommentator

Just some quick post shots into the ether of something the other that’s caught my eye 😊

Sometimes humorous. Sometimes serious. Sometimes baffling.

Sometimes beautiful.

All as they effect me of course, but enough I wanted to share (retweet & post).

Matthew Dowd is one of a very few politically orientated folks I look forward to seeing on Twitter. He’s smart, articulate, and being a Texan, comes across as the better half of our state’s wide populace – especially in terms of inclusiveness and a quiet almost restrained kindness. So he’s tweets tend to appeal to me. Not that I’m like him exactly, lol! But they help me be – or I should say remind me to help me be, also more inclusive, maybe more consciously kinder. He usually presents three or more tweets celebrating folks birthdays with sample quotes plus inclusive quotes from a very wide swath – Jane Austen, Chief Crowfoot, John Muir, Beethoven, George Santayana, Morris Dees, St Francis, Muriel Rukeyser, Swami Ranganathananda, Betty Smith, Alexander Gustave Eiffel, Virginia Coffey, Meister Eckhart, Wallace Stevens, Ella Josephine Baker, and of course as presented above, Victor Hugo. So maybe Matthew presents a HUGE swath, lol! Either way, I feel one browsing his Twitter feed’ ll find much to be included with ❤️

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!

  • October 19, 2021 – Turning 71 Feels Like Turning on the Spigots!
    I’ve meandered around what to write for my birthday post this year, probably reflecting not exactly the chaos (though there’s enough of that, lol!) but the whirl of activity in my life right now – fitness activities, art – of all kind, family, and the stutteringly slow but certain shift from unbearable 6 month summer in Austin to, well, breathable walkable art-doable weather ❤️ Weatherman says the weekend days’ highs into my birthday (Tuesday) are the coolest temps since mid-April. That’s a very long time, lol! 😅
  • October 18, 2021 – A Good Problem, Lots of Interesting Pics and Posts Developing in My Blog Pipeline! Part 3, 1st Completed Work of 5 – “Playtime, Mother and Child”
    I’m also breaking a bit of tradition in terms of my routine and going ahead and posting my completed image, not as good a resolution etc as I’d like (yet), and also not yet uploaded to Fine Art America. It’s simply a time choice. Paint and create. Or paint less but massage the photo capture & upload to FAA more. It’s not really a win-lose thing.
  • October 17, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image For a 2nd Week @FineArtAmerica, Abstract Study 1, #watercolor
    Though I’ve had some of my images repeat a 2nd week or more, or return again after awhile to place top of my views for the week at Fine Art America, it’s still rare for an abstract of mine to do so. It’s sorta ironic for me, since I began painting in earnest in the 80s creating acrylic abstracts (after fooling around doing clouds and Dali-ish dripping clocks in my 20s 😊), and then….
  • October 16, 2021 – My Idea for Promoting My WordPress Blog Posts on Twitter (Besides My Pinned Tweet), Part 2
    Knowing me, I doubt this’ll be my final tweet format I can use on Twitter to let folks see & know what my most recent blog posts are. I of course tweet the individual blog posts themselves out, often using them here in my posts. But I felt the need for a more inclusive, easy to change to keep up-to-date format and after some earlier incarnations, this tweet above may work for me for awhile, changing the screen shot of my current blogs as needed 😊
  • October 15, 2021 – 2nd Time Out Sketching with Austin’s #UrbanSketchers Group! Still a Treat! #PeasePark
    Though immensely more challenging this time around for October’s outting with Austin’s Urban Sketchers chapter (heat indexes near 100 – hopefully a forerunner to an expected cool front; traffic challenges due to Austin City Limits festival), and, not particularly enamored with my resultant efforts this time around — — it was so good to talk with other artists! Be out among so many folks and families, and, “try” my 2nd time out painting plein air since (I think) the early 2000s!
  • October 14, 2021 – My Idea for Promoting My WordPress Blog Posts on Twitter (Besides My Pinned Tweet), Part 1
    I have my pinned tweet on my Twitter timeline of course, where I show images of my work on Fine Art America, with link to my site there of course, and, also list my blog site here on WordPress. But as you can tell above, the latter, my WordPress website, gets not that much focus. Though if you’d like to retweet it, please do, lol! 😊 So basically, I asked myself, how – beyond a 2 short lines in the text – can I better promote my WordPress site, along with my Fine Art America site?
  • October 13, 2021 – A Good Problem, Lots of Interesting Pics and Posts Developing in My Blog Pipeline! Part 2
    Recently I posted 3 other canvas paintings I’ve been working on, and here I’m showing the 2 I’d mentioned in that post but didn’t have photo captures of yet. Both are 18×24 on canvas, with light molding paste from Golden, but, at this stage applied slightly differently.

Thanks again, everyone! 😊
