I’ve had a string of strange stranded-like days since my mom’s burial.

Along with a variety of naps from 5 minutes to an hour, I’ve walked more slowly, studying the shadows and dappled light along the paths of the greenbelt nearby. I’ve woken feeling a clarity about wanting to work with figures in my art. I haven’t painted since the crisis before her passing, but have taken more photos, more randomly – spontaneously, letting my review of them later be okay enough to keep the ones I want, realizing it’ll be a challenge, a fun challenge I hope, to “dapple” those in full shadow. It was nearly two months ago I asked myself (on my blog), “What Makes Dappled Light Work? It Almost Always Looks Good!” I think I’m closer to an answer, and want to experiment “adding” dappled light effectively, ie, pleasingly, enchantingly, onto shadowed surfaces. And, in an effort to control my recently sorta high blood pressure, eventually without meds I hope, pick up a recurrent obsession of mine since my late teens / early 20’s – meditation 😊

It feels like I’ve a trusted guiding hand on my mind’s shoulder now ♥️

I wish everyone the best, may you and yours stay well –

And may your creative dreams persist! 💕
