Another of my idea-searches for something at least relatively easy for me to post when I’d rather be painting, eating, sleeping, walking, or other random unrelated surprise opportunities the day might bring 😊
The big time saver is the image isn’t already posted to Fine Art America, or anywhere else, though it might end up on FB eventually, lol! When I have time, this image, or some variation or adjusted version of it mightend up on FAA. I’d like it to. It’s all a matter of time.
I’d like to say this feature’ll normally show up later to end of the day ’cause I’m looking for the day’s best shot, but – it’s really more to let me live the day and see what happens….
That said, if I don’t like any of the day’s pictures, there’ll be none.
I want this to be, at the least, interesting ☺️
I’ve had numerous requests for more info ’bout the greenbelt, Barton Creek Greenbelt, near where Sheila and I live now. Walkable, climbable trails run both sides of Barton Creek, ie, east and west, each themselves usable going north or south. Our youngest girl says she’s walked the entire perimeter at least twice, and took about 5 hours! A few other requests have been for pics of the creek with water in it, and we did get a little rain yesterday, but not enough to show a huge difference. Still, I’ll try and upload a 2nd pic later this evening with what shot I could grab venturing partially out on the rocks onto the creek bed. That probably would’ve made the best pic, me meandering tip-toe and flat footed rock to rock, lol! Next time I’ll see if Sheila’ll bring her phone and take a pic of me, lol! And for those wanting even more info about the trail, it’s current extended length and projected even further reach, the best place I’ve found yet is the Violet Crown Trail website. They expand on what Google Map can also show you if you pinch the map image in the link below my featured image, telling more about the trail, volunteer opportunities, and future plans ❤️
Stay healthy everyone! I’m sure there’s folks depending on you, and don’t forget, you are too! 💕
ps – update – I’ve posted a 2nd image this evening, one with some of last night’s rain still in the creek 😊

- January 23, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Blue Impressionist Abstract 1 – New 12×24 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingIt’s kinda neat how these impressionist abstract panoramas I’ve been working on conjure up so many varying images, or at least semi-suggested images, lol! I see waves and sky and beach, the horizon line shifting from lower 1/3 to upper 1/3 depending how I squint 😊 Working bottom to top, I can even see….
- January 22, 2022 – Rethinking (re-engineering?) How I Post About Images I Upload to #FineArtAmericaMy most emerging challenge as I ramp up being able to and wanting to paint more often – each day if possible – is time. Not a big surprise for all the folks with lots of interests and/or commitments, even for us 70+ year olds, lol! Though, surprisingly, just as difficult to navigate the demands and siren calls of attention in our lives. Kinda nice though, that kind of problem has persisted from when….
- January 21, 2022 – New 16×20 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Healthy Vines Happy HeartsA relatively simple work with a slightly more complex arrangement of paint application than my usual. That’s a mouthful, lol! But pretty accurate in term of my process! 😊 First, I laid in a faint yellow base, a mix of watercolor and acrylic. Next I laid over a….
- January 20, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 2As mentioned in my prev post, my then problem and now radical solution in re to a painting I’d struggled with, done the most I felt I could, and was still quite unhappy with, began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, re listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
