I hoped to build on yesterday’s video and think I did grab a decent one. The pic above is a screen shot from today’s video below —
Unless I get lucky, I’m finding I like picking my own frame for the video’s thumbnail, since I often then use it for my header and my “featured image” via WordPress’ architecture. It makes presenting a video more fun for me 😊
Though not nearly as crowded as this past weekend, there were still folks around mid-morning. The sun wasn’t out full blast yet, so the colors in the water and the dappling of the light in the woods weren’t quite what I’d prefer, but it was definitely a doable temperature, lol!
Plus I also accomplished what I wished I’d done better yesterday – show off my new waterproof hiking sandals. I also like they dry quickly with grit and such brushing or washing off easily, yes! 👍
I thought to order a pair for the 8 year old to use so he can run around better out here and hopefully he’ll get to try them out this weekend; if so I’ll post pics of that too – he of course helped pick his pair out, including what shade of blue – surprisingly, a brighter tint than his usual deep royal blue 😊 He’s growing into new colors! ❤️
Meanwhile, one little guy out there this morning (below) was not interested in venturing any deeper, though his owner coaxed and pleaded with him to. I don’t blame him, I stayed in my own version of the shallow end of the pool too ☺️
I might’ve stayed longer, but I needed to and did work on my Volleyball gift writing series, organizing the 7 sports gift writings in the series so’s to put the whole Volleyball series in the Old Bakery for when it opens later this month or early next!
Volleyball Kill is formatted now, for upload to Fine Art America and for being printed next week with my other Volleyball writings. It may all be for naught, but it’d definitely be a zero if I don’t give it a try 😊
Just as importantly, I finally had all the hardware and gumption to install the brackets, rod and set of sun blocker curtains on our lone south facing window (with a lace curtain inset between the two sun blocker halves). It was like instant relief from the early summer Texas sun – whew! Plus really nice to look at, lol!
Take care then everyone! Heat indexes are building and heat warnings are spreading –
Stay cool as needed! ♥️ That’s the cool thing to do! 😊

- 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 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.

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! 😊
