I have most my images, prints and originals, paper/canvas/panels, mostly packed now.
Somehow I’ve ended up with several stragglers, lol! A small pile of 8×10 prints, including my Feb 2017 shot of the SRV statue close to where we’re moving back though not as close as we used to live to it; some larger panoramic shots off the Island Line Trail crossing Lake Champlain from the mainland to South Hero (and where, all goes well, we may finally visit again this summer 😊), and one of my original line art butterflies printed out onto a 12×18 watercolor paper to what might happen!
It almost seems on purpose, just for the photo, but it really wasn’t, lol!
No, I have a large stack of other 12x18s, along with lots of 8x10s including clear sleeves and backings, plus stacked plastic storage containers of my watercolor paper pics and paper.
No big deal. There’s so much that’s been gotten ready, it’s ok.
These were actually stragglers already, hiding, or having been hidden and forgotten more likely – by me 😏 – sometime over the last couple years. Once we’re settled in our new, even if smaller apt, I’ll have ready spaces and homes for them til I can begin showing and, hopefully, selling them again ☺️
Tomorrow, if I can upload another new poem from my Volleyball series to Fine Art America, I may have at least a sorta-regular post!
Tomorrow is finish what we can before Sheila and I spend Tuesday morning doing paperwork and taking possession of our new space, then make at least two round trips with what we can stuff in our car, plus a friend who might be able to help out that afternoon, then after on Wednesday morning. After that, it’s the big move!
I truly appreciate all the good wishes and hopefulness we all usually want to feel when relocating 💕
Take care then, sneak in creative moments, make time for relaxation breaks, breathe!
And stay well! ♥️

- October 26, 2021 – I’ve Been Reading, and It’s Triggered a Realization on My Part How Important the Surface of a Painting, My Own Paintings in Particular, Are to Me….…tinkering with the surface of my current art work. I enjoy doing that, immensely. The surface of my work often being as important, or I should say, as interesting to me, as the image as a whole. And of course now I want to make the image as a whole, whether seen from a short nose-to-the canvas space, to the further distance where the image is, well, simply just an image as a whole.
- October 25, 2021 – New Masking Fluid Project – “Angel”Continuing with more new paintings I’ve recently set in motion, Angel appears to be a dark swirl but is actually hiding some carefully but casually placed masking fluid lines. I’ll be showing some detail shots of “Angel”‘s more recent state tomorrow, but am still working on the painting as a whole. This particular masking fluid experiment is almost a direct descendant of an abstract study on paper I recently wrecked, lol!
- October 24, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image This Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Arm Chair View Paris, an early #watercolor #blackandwhite #figureart circa Sept 2020An interesting most viewed results on my Fine Art America site this past viewing period — Plus, as surprising, was the fact 4 of my top 6 most viewed images were Paris themed, 2 of the remainder were also from places we’ve visited (New York & Vermont), followed by most viewed “period” of an Austin pink sunset 😊 On top of that I’ve apparently never included an image of Arm Chair View Paris in one of my blog posts before! Well we’re remedying that here now ❤️
- October 23, 2021 – New #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Mother and ChildIt’s been quite a development for this painting, growing from an idea of a previous work with a less defined at the time unrealized depiction of a younger and older person. Probably the most important development is my own realization of that development, lol! Frankly, though I often saw a realization-glimpse of that sort even from my 20s about my art, and maybe as a child, I literally blew it off and kept on going 😊
- October 22, 2021 – A Day With the 8 Year Old = Painting His Wooden Sword for Halloween, Circling the Trailhead to Barton Creek Greenbelt, Visiting Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Celebrating Veterans Art at the Old Bakery & Emporium, and Watching Big Hero 6 on Disney+!!!This post is long on pictures, mostly because it was a long day from getting up to getting back to bed, lol! But what a good day it was ❤️ Here’s hoping this long post of pictures brings a similar good feeling! First up, above, is a special project Max has had his heart on, re-creating a magical sword he sees and experiences using in one of his video games – Zelda Breath of the Wild! All part of his progressing Halloween costume….
- October 21, 2021 – Delivering New Art to the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – 3 Piece Floral Set and 1 Autumn 6×6, all #WatercolorsDespite my many gripes about living in Austin, Texas, there’s of course a handful of things I do like. Among them is the opportunity the city makes for artisans 50 or older living in the Austin area to show their creative work. I’ve been fortunate to have some sales, and am very grateful to be able to replenish my inventory with the paintings above.
- October 20, 2021 – Sold! At the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – Paris Dreams (Dreaming of Paris)I’m very grateful to my buyer at the Old Bakery & Emporium in Austin Texas! 🙏 With as few months as the Old Bakery’s been reopen, and all the precautions needed to be taken recently here in Austin, it’s a miracle to be able to share my art a this time 💕
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
