Finishing up my current 3 part series about my experience with the Related Posts block via WordPress, this last post ended up picture rich so to speak, lol!
They above image is slight overkill with my red circles, but I wasn’t sure how clear this would be even to me, so you might say it was more for my sake 😊
Obviously, all the images representing 6 different related posts is the same, me from the culmination of a four year effort to cross Lake Champlain from the mainland to South Hero on a bicycle (with a short necessary bike ferry connection at the gap where sailboats and such pass through).
The image below is how the same Related Posts block looked after making a tweak (which I’ll show at the end) —
Then I readjusted my # of Related Posts to show via the sliders I showed pictures of in my previous post, and wallah!
A sharply more eye-catching depiction, not only because the monotony of my smiling face is broken up 😂 but also because the top 2 images are now bigger.
This 5 image configuration is my fav at this time, even though I do use the 6 image option if it simply appeals to me for any varied reason – like I want or need that 6th image to show because it’s important somehow, or, there simply aren’t enough eye-catching images among the 6 or without the 6th. That happens 😊
I do think I can “probably” create a post-specific-tag to include any 1-6 posts/images I want to go with a particular post, and maybe I’d want to do that some time or other, but the Related Posts feature, as I’ve mentioned before, is dynamic, and WordPress is pretty good ’bout including current and older posts. And that’s something I really like!
So what is the tweak that finally placed my selected image into the Related Posts for all to see!
Well, this is what my post for one of my Tweets That Caught my Eye on Twitter series.
No header image.
This is the same post with my intended feature image, now also serving as my header image 😊
Now that wasn’t too hard, was it, lol! 😂
Stay warm everyone – we here in Austin are in the 1st 1/2 of a multi-decade ice/sleet/snow episode with four fronts joining forces against this past summer’s all time record heat – whew! 😊

- November 28, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image This Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Heart FragmentIf it was an amazing process to see older photos and artwork show up on my most viewed list last week (and it was 😊) then this batch is incredible! Work from so many years have shown up, and such a variety! It tells me, one can never quite tell what folks might be looking for day to day, week to week, and it’s nice for me to have the inventory assortment, “almost” a historical diary, of my work
- November 27, 2021 – LOL! I Don’t Like It, But I WANT It! : Preparing More Paintings and Applications for Places to Show and Sell!!I squashed together what I could to show a “fair” sampling of my work recently finished or in-progress right now. There’s more, tucked here and there among these, lol! And on another wall! I choose to consider that a good problem 😊 Seeing these together like tis, If I had to choose one thing tying them all together – the impressionist skews, the abstracted slants, the washes, the thick tones, the high key and (nearly) BW work – I’d say it’s….
- November 26, 2021 – Working on Paintings; In-Progress : 2 New Lay-ins ( “Heart Fragment” and “Approach” ) Based on Details from Two Existing PaintingsThis has been something I’ve toyed with and talked about for a bit now — finding / picking a detail fragment of an existing painting (or photo etc) from which to base new work on. And I shoulda caught on to how well this might work for me, in terms of creativity and viewership, with my success with a related project where I painted an abstracted detail from an existing painting to create a new related one. That happened with Abstract Study 1 shown at the bottom of this post.
- November 25, 2021 – Happy Thanksgiving 2021!!Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m posting the same header as last year, Norman Rockwell’s “Freedom From Want” oil on canvas from 1943, smack in the middle of the 2nd World War.
- November 24, 2021 – Working on Paintings; In-Progress : Valentines 2022, In-Progress Since Early October, lol!Not quite finished, but looking fairly good, especially considering back in early October I thought, “Yeah, I can finish this quick then save it for early next year.” Now, I’m thinking, really? Will I really finally get this finished by January next year, lol!
- November 23, 2021 – Making Connections Between “Ninth Street Women” (a book) and Golden’s Acrylic Paint (a kinda Review/Reblog)What a treat! To be reading an informative email (with links within my Goldens info email of new “Just Paint” articles) and learning of another connection between the 1930s-1950s NYC artists I’m currently reading about in Ninth Street Women (by Mary Gabriel) and the acrylic paints I’m using today! ❤️ The book itself often reads like both a novel and personal escort into art and the artists who initiated and propelled abstract art, and —
- November 22, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image This Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Walking in LightI particularly like the look and feel of Walking in Light, the sway of colors synced with the vegetation and figure walking in an easy light ❤️ This post I’m including a pic of more of my images on the most viewed info I get from Fine Art America, just ’cause the array of colors and styles seem to work really well, lol! 😊
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
