Almost didn’t even try creating a post for Saturday, but I felt I should act least give a follow-up, much like I did after our 1st shot (Moderna) a month ago. This time Sheila and I both knew to hit the Tylenol once we began aching too much to be able to do much. Like the 1st shot’s after-experience, Sheila’s weathering it all much better than me, but definitely also feeling its effects.
I won’t go on too much on topics I wanted to ask a little more about, but yesterday’s day-of-shot post covers some pretty good things, how even a basic health aid like washing one’s hands wasn’t an agreed upon safety necessity even up to the Civil War! Check the post out, lots of links to that and other info –
March 26, 2021 – We Received Our 2nd Covid Shots Yesterday!
And if I want to continue my Interesting Tweets This Morning series, I’ll have to beg off for, soon 😊
I have worked, up until today, on my newest Line Art with Wash Poem, Radiology Technologist, and I have found having a day or so just looking at my preliminary set up, and knowing where I’d like it go, really helps later on.
This image below includes a transparent pixel layer, a fill layer, and two layers with the differing ribs (front and back) —
But before I go, the one BIG thing I need to do, want to do, is give a very public, unconditional thanks to Austin Public Health. They’ve been criticized up and down in the media here, including a few snide private remarks early on from myself and my wife, lol! 😏
In both our 1st and 2nd Moderna shot-locations, everything was literally completely organized for vehicular traffic, patient flow, and an evolving distribution of information and vaccines.
The thing is, as I said to the Dr who apologized to us for their set-up being so unorganized, we assured them – it was and is organized — AND — with little more than 60 days lead time, ie, since January 20th of this year! When everything changed. For the better!
As I said when they again apologized for the short wait at the tables for the vaccine needles to be brought over (for our 2nd shot), after a year and half, the wait time right then was nothing ♥️
Sheila and I were and are very very grateful!
Best wishes everyone’s! Stay well, stay creative, stay optimistic! 😊

- September 22, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper; 1st Paint Lay-in with Masking FluidAt 9×12 on 140lb x watercolor paper, I was able to use my brushes fairly effectively where I wanted them, and applied some Turner masking fluid (with a thin palette knife) “fairly” easy. And yes, some foot proportions are off a bit, lol, and her back blouse almost looks like it’s the front, but all in not too bad toward my primary priority – quickly achieve some degree of dappling look. Once the masking fluid comes off though, it could be very different….
- September 21, 2021 – Initial Review of “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art” by James NestorI’d been doing a day to day posting of a continuing study-sketch project with figures in a watercolor landscape and ran into a time roadblock – grandchild, groceries, fitness (walking, yoga, Essentrics), picking up line art to practice-paint at my printer, etc 😊 and wasn’t able to wiggle any more time to work on that project and write about it, so… I took a deep breath and picked up a book (virtually, via my Kindle Reader, lol!) The editorial reviews often mentioned this read like a novel & my intro and beginning pages already confirm that.
- 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….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
