My excerpt series from my novella, The Old American Artist, is nearing the end of its initial run!
I’ve about two weeks (Mon-Fri) of excerpts left, and folks have been commenting to me on the increasing emotional impact between Arturo and Rosetta – as it should be 😊 💕
And I say “initial” run because, once this sequence ends, I’ll begin again, repeating the same excerpt series – but – this time with my commentary on the impact of seeing and reading and hearing the words in my head again, after several years.
Some commentary will be reflecting to personal moments that gave rise to the fictional scene. Other commentary will be on feelings revisiting moments and / or places in the story, that though factionalized, is still semi-biographical. Some scenes take me to moments in my creative development, and illicit feelings and ideas about my own then and my own work now. It’s a strange but wonderful thing I’ve been fortunate to experience – reflection via re-experience of life events.
I think it’ll be interesting to me to articulate those parallels, those convergences and departures within myself of three levels – the story, the autobiographical component, and the creative aspect.
Hope you tune in. I’ll be sure and do an into post to set the new series off ☺️
Lastly, I “think” I’ve found the box with my original oil of the San Antonio riverwalk, the image I use for the cover of my book. I saw it accidentally a few weeks ago, tucked way behind my wife’s clothes in one of the closets, but I haven’t pulled it out, or looked at yet. Actually, haven’t seen the life painting in over a decade – should be fun!
I’ve never even uploaded the image sell prints and gifts on Fine Art America ’cause I never got to take a really nice capture for it – yet!
This time, in time for when the new excerpt series with commentary starts, I really would like to have that 😊
Below, is my normal links to info about my series, plus, in place of an excerpt, I have the info to a wonder review by Glynn Young on his site – I hope you get to go read it. It’s a relatively quick read and I feel gets to a lot of the issues and nuances of the story ❤️
Take care then, everyone! Tomorrow should have my regular running excerpt – with ’bout 2 weeks left running.

To make posting my series of excerpt tweets for my novella, The Old American Artist, easier for me to post regularly (Mon-Fri), and quicker for folks to see and read, I created a reference post/page with “lots” of info that can easily be reached there 😊
That includes info on or about :
- Intro to this series

- The image art for my cover, my painting, San Antonio Riverwalk
- About my art and it’s relationship to this literary fiction work
- The numbering system I’m using in the tweets (and why)

- 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! 😊
