Early next week I’ll be going to the Old Bakery & Emporium as they prepare to hopefully reopen late June or early July! Some previous work and some new work are among my selections. I was gonna take pics of all my choices, but I think just a couple will give an idea. The main thing is, we’re hoping for a soft opening and a chance to show again! ❤️ 😊

Part of the process is creating a description list with prices. Fifteen items doesn’t seem like a lot, but once I started listing images, well, yeah, it’s a nice amount 😊

Prints, watercolors, acrylics, some small & some medium size, plus one nice 24×36 canvas print of my digital watercolor version of the view from Lou Neff Point along Lady Bird Lake (see tweet below).

Here’s hoping things continue to improve for all of us! ♥️

Stay creative! 💕

  • September 26, 2021 – Continuing Review of “Breath (nearly 1/2 read): The New Science of a Lost Art” by James Nestor
    Almost half way through “The New Science of a Lost Art”, I am in a swirl of conflicting interacting sometimes ecstatic emotions, much like how the author, James Nestor, has brilliantly presented the past (and often still present misconceptions) and present, with the still-developing future medical awareness – and confirmation – of how our most basic bodily functions, well, function 😊 My initial post, barely a dozen pages into reading, about Nestor’s book, included this quote —
  • September 25, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper, Completed
    Not much difference between the previous post’s study version and the completed version above. As you can tell, from the 2nd duo sets of contrasts below, all I did was soften the upper slanting line separating red and white on the lady’s back. But for me, it….
  • September 24, 2021 – New Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, Ridges of Spring Light, #watercolor, painted late 2019
    I’ve recently been including Ridges of Spring Light in several of my blog posts about dappled light and masking fluid, not because it was meant to “be” dappled light, or that I used masking fluid creating it, though it does have three distinct areas of canvas (coated with absorbent ground to accept watercolors). No, Ridges of Spring Light contains a sense of dappleness, often created with masking fluid, and I used that image here to illustrate the idea that a variable sense of light sometimes just comes about, even in an abstract.
  • September 23, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper, Masking Fluid Removed
    There’s a lot I like about how this looks with the masking fluid gone (removed prev night and slept on the shock of seeing the changes, lol!) – which doesn’t mean though I’m not looking at what to try to improve how I feel about this work 😊 Initially, 1st impression, I was determined to restore & “correct” some of the changes —
  • September 22, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper; 1st Paint Lay-in with Masking Fluid
    At 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 Nestor
    I’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) —

Thanks again, everyone! 😊

    • Omgosh, I can’t believe how far I’ve gotten behind on stuff, but I’m getting there! Thanks so much, Tiffany! Sheila and I were both surprised how excited we were just being back inside the Old Bakery and seeing nearly all the old crew plus some new folk! Choosing was, yes, “very” difficult, but I told myself, if I get lucky & sell something over the summer, I’ve got more to bring there 😊
