It’s difficult indeed to describe how wonderful a silver lining it is that our remote schooled youngest grandchild (via Zoom etc) is realistically safest visiting and staying with us a couple days than so many other options!
‘Cept for the random thought here or there, I’m just gonna post the pics and video 😊
He really didn’t leave us much energy or time to do otherwise, lol! ❤️
This is a nature path that runs along Slaughter Creek here in Austin. There’s several places to access it and we’re lucky enough to be near a small park like entrance. As you can tell, Max didn’t waste much time gettin’ going 😊
With a few winter sprigs, Sheila and Max “faced off” in a no-one’s-gonna-win-this-one battle of the multiple generation gap 😏 😊
#Eventually the day warmed up enough and Max shed his coat. So lucky to have Grandma nearby 😊
This short video is from the next day, Max showing off his balancing dexterity – pretty remarkable actually! I asked him if he remembered being half his size and me balancing him on his belly on the ball and he just grinned ☺️
There were of course tons more pics and videos, but you get the idea.
And that was where our weekend went 💕
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
ps – that’s the same young man in the tweet further below ❤️

- September 20, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” Still Not Done, But, Already a Learning Tool For Me!“Learning Tool for Me” is part of my blog title today simply ’cause I’ve looking at this post as specifically geared to get me where I wanna go – keeping in mind my destination is a generalized abstraction of image / feeling / and intuitive aspiration (hopefully including figurative work) & it’s reached a point of development over my previous renditions that I now need to put my resolve into concrete, hopefully creative, useful thoughts for my future directions. Lot of contradictions. Like life. Like me 😊 Here goes (for now) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!
- September 17, 2021 – New Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, “Fantasy Walk” : Watercolor on Canvas on Light Molding Paste, #ContemporaryImpressionismSome times, some days, the little things, like the big things, if they are good and hopeful, then they are helpful.
- September 16, 2021 – Reblog(s) : Graham McQuade, Benchmarks 1 & 2 (Acrylic Painting) #figureartThis necessarily (on my part) a short post due to some time constraints, although I should add, Graham’s posts will be a quick read. They’re short, tight with information. What will take a little time, if you notice the time 😊 is….
- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
- September 14, 2021 – Playing with 4K Video to Grab Still ShotsNow that we’ve had our bird feeder up a few months at our new location, we’ve come across a wider variety of birds (and other critters) and’ve been working at grabbing shots of birds in motion I might could use for sketches and such 🦅
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
