Is our #TexasFreeze winter storm over? A wrap? Done and ready to be forgotten?
Well…despite yesterday and today’s lower 80s temps and clear blue skies, it’s certainly debatable if the necessary blame has been settled, the necessary preventable measures agreed upon (much less started), or the even more necessary restorations and repairs completed – but, for everyday living, beginning to celebrate with family, and welcome all the creatures who were able to fly away or hide for awhile – the new bird feeder, a delayed Valentines Day present from the 8 year old grandson to his mommie is a welcome reminder – good things will continue despite all the obstacles.
In addition, Sheila and I are wrapping up plans to move back closer to town, closer to where the above grandchild and others are currently living. It’ll be a transition a couple months into the making, but be good to also be closer to our son, the oldest granddaughter, the middle granddaughter gallantly continuing her nursing education at UT, and even close to some grand old art standbys of mine, like The Old Bakery & Emporium (hopefully reopening this spring or summer).
Plus, Sheila and I may finally get our 1st round of vaccinations for those over 65!
And, I’m beginning to be able to upload new paintings to Fine Art America, plus post some new PhotoPoems.
So yes, there’s no one I know or spoken with who feels something very wrong and very unnecessarily wrong happened to us recently. Cost some folks the lives of loved one. And cost other folks untold dollars in inflated heating bills and / or structural repairs.
But #TexasStrong is a real thing.
And we’re living it now 💕
Stay well everyone!

- 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.

- 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.
- January 12, 2022 – Auditioned 3 Paintings at #ArtForThePeopleGallery, Snuck in 3 Unannounced Works, Got 4 of 6 Accepted!!!Well, I didn’t really “sneak” 3 additional works into my art audition at Art for the People Gallery here in Austin — but I did pack 3 extra pieces into my car & after they’d seen the 3 they’d asked to see, I asked them if they’d like to see some even newer work, basically blocks of color, with texture, that I had with me? And they said yes! The 3 they first asked to see….
- January 11, 2022 – Adan’s #ArtPoems / #PhotoPoems : Light is But Darkness Feeling…I’ve had a PhotoPoems / Photo Poems series of posts seems since near when I 1st started my blog, and was tempted to call this verse, for Angel, a PhotoPoem also. But even though I’ve a few posts tying poem and art work together, I don’t think that would be in the spirit of the thought behind the poems anymore. An art poem, I feel instinctively, is….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
