Today marks a week since Sheila and I got our booster shots, and I’m very glad to say we seem to have recovered from it (esp me) much quicker and cleaner than either shots 1 or 2!
The nasty looking, nasty feeling Covid arm red round spot (our oldest girl in the med field says she got one her 1st shot, but none after!) caused some concern but did fade out over the next couple of days.
I’d of course also by then looked the red spot up and evidently it’s not exactly an allergic reaction but actually a rash, potentially very serious if one gets real dizzy / itchy / or has difficulty breathing.
The CDC evidently has known this & the more serious allergic reactions and posted some good different IG information on a page from last year that’s apparently updated as needed. This is an excerpt re the rash, the kind Sheila & I got –
…some people have experienced a red, itchy, swollen, or painful rash where they got the shot. These rashes can start a few days to more than a week after the first shot and are sometimes quite large. These rashes are also known as “COVID arm.” If you experience “COVID arm” after getting the first shot, you should still get the second shot at the recommended interval if the vaccine you got needs a second shot. Tell your vaccination provider that you experienced a rash or “COVID arm” after the first shot. [ bold emphasis via CDC ]https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/allergic-reaction.html
I did take a pic of my own arm, and it was so scary, well, the way the wirey-ness of the hairs on my arm stood out, I almost decided not to post it, lol!
I only wish my camera would capture detail like this on my art work! 😏
Sheila’s arm looks lovely as ever again now a week later. Mine, wirey as ever, is no longer red, but doesn’t need a new pic posted, lol!
And yesterday, for the 1st time in a week, we felt up to venturing outdoors, to the shenanigans at Zilker Park! We had sun, we had sprinkles of rain, and we had the 8 year old with us after school 💕
Some things just take awhile to work out 😊 Stay well everyone! ♥️

- September 21, 2021 – Initial Review of “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art” by James NestorI’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) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!
- September 17, 2021 – New Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, “Fantasy Walk” : Watercolor on Canvas on Light Molding Paste, #ContemporaryImpressionismSome times, some days, the little things, like the big things, if they are good and hopeful, then they are helpful.
- September 16, 2021 – Reblog(s) : Graham McQuade, Benchmarks 1 & 2 (Acrylic Painting) #figureartThis necessarily (on my part) a short post due to some time constraints, although I should add, Graham’s posts will be a quick read. They’re short, tight with information. What will take a little time, if you notice the time 😊 is….
- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
