Rains fall heavy enough, even if rarely, that numerous drainage pathways like that above exist in most neighborhoods. The rare snow provides a great bed to showcase itself plus provide visual perspective of the land. Kinda nice side effect 😊
Though not as heavy as earlier in the week, this was still pretty to see; such a rare sight in Austin.
The above video was in the morning, and the video below was later in the day.
The weird snow shape below was a surprise as we gouged snow into buckets to use as snow-melt water to flush the toilets. Water pressure is returning here and there in the city, but seemingly randomly. Because of yesterday’s light rain during the day, a thin ice field formed over the softer previous day’s snow. All stuff new to me, lol!
Below is a usually not quite so rustic view on a nearby road and hill.
What’s also unusual, besides snow of course 😊 is the lack of a constant flow of vehicles on this road. Nice. Even if not under the current circumstances.
This view below is a telephoto view variation of the article’s top pic.
Such a country feel of a view so often hid away within the green brush and trees.
My final image is a variation of my header image on another post featuring our host’s wonderful cat ❤️
Instead of luxuriating by the window with the snow outside, as in the post linked to above, it was time to lounge on the comfy owner’s chair 😊
I hope you got to take a look at my humorous take on the day’s events in this morning’s post, and hope and pray we’ll have much more to smile about going forward ☺️
Take care everyone 🙏

- 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 🦅

Meaning I can’t believe, despite my half-century+ enchantment with impressionism, esp Monet & Renoir) I never came across it before! In fact, I’m still coming across new material; not to mention the staggering review of much of Monet’s art work!
- September 11, 2021 – “Fantasy Walk” : Figure Art on Light Molding Paste on Canvas, Calling it Done, Sorta….Developing this painting has been more lesson on do’s and don’t’s I think than of completing a finished work, though I also think I’m gonna have to call this one done and move on. Looking at the image sequence from top to bottom, working from finish back to my start, I can see several “things” I’d’ve done differently. Most obvious now is I shoulda left a….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
