My 2021 blog posts are already showing their hand, with the arts (poetry, photography, painting) being the big draws, each post with their own subject matter to the artist or poet 😊
I like them all 💕
Volleyball Setter Poster Original Sports Poetry Back in Stock
©Felipe Adan Lerma
My blog post –
Copyrighted, written in 1994, very popular when Sheila and I did art and craft shows in the 90s, and included in my book, 101 Sports Poems (registered with Library of Congress), Volleyball Setter has always been a huge draw.
All my oldest girl’s girls were/are passionate about volleyball, and my 2nd oldest granddaughter is the girl in the image w/the writing ❤️
In addition, my blog posts – Volleyball Setter Original Sports Poetry Back in Stock – has been my most viewed post five years running and looks to easily be so again this year! A sixth years!
Though obviously, being a popular sport, is a major factor, it’s gratifying to know it’s also a poem, and one I wrote when doing shows with my wife Sheila 💕
It’s probably time I gave serious planning for a variety of limited edition prints!
Gifts and prints meanwhile, are available via Fine Art America 😊
My Two Most Popular Posts November 2020 – Both About the Arts – Richard Bernabe and Arteza Watercolor Brush Pens
My blog post –
These two posts, one about my first taste using Arteza’s Watercolor Brush Pens, the other featuring a tweet that caught my eye from photographer Richard Bernabe, were my most popular this past November (2020), and my post about that itself is continuing to be a most viewed post currently!
It’s especially nice I think that both posts are about the arts! 😊
Margaret Hall Reblog – Sketching Outside in Winter With Watercolor
My blog post –
My post, reblog actually, of Margaret Hall’s own blog post, Sketching Outside in Winter with Watercolor, is, so readers here will know, one of a consistent flow of charm filled words and images. There’s something very lovely about her work and approach, and am so glad it’s been quite competitive this month with my more repetitively enduring most viewed posts. I hope you’ll give her short post a quick look. I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed 😊
That’s my top three – normally two, but 2 were tied! – posts for the first two weeks of 2021.
The arts continue to look promising!
Thanks so much!

- January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
- January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne MizeDianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.
- January 17, 2022 – Art Delivery to Cypress Grill Austin for a Creative Arts Society Rotating Member ShowingI’m happy to post I’m placing my 1st piece of art work at a Creative Arts Society member venue in over a year and a half!
- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.
- January 15, 2022 – New 12×24 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Blue Impressionist Abstract 1Third of my 3 uploaded acrylic color blocks, each 12×24 inches on gallery wrapped canvas, Blue gives me a triad of sorts, the other two paintings being red and yellow. A link to related blog posts is – https://felipeadanlerma.com/?s=Impressionist+abstract I’ve always like panoramas, even in my….
- January 14, 2022 – Painting + Capturing Photos of the Sides of 2 #ImpressionistAbstract Panoramas Accepted by Art for the People Gallery AustinA few posts ago I announced about my art audition for an upcoming show at Austin local gallery, Art for the People, and mentioned I’d had a couple of my Impressionist Abstract panoramas chosen! One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting! Why?
- January 13, 2022 – 2 New Works In-Progress : Good Conversation + Healthy Vines Happy Hearts – #AbstractPainting #LyricalAbstraction #TheAdjacentPossibleWasn’t sure what I wanted to paint this particular day, just really needed to 😊 I’ve been reading a creativity book, The Adjacent Possible; filled with good ideas, one of which emphasizes “just starting.” A concept the author calls zero to 1, which she explains is like this huge leap, from nothing, to something. She says it over and over, all different ways, and I understood it. First intellectually. Then emotionally. And today, physically.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
