Knowing me, I doubt this’ll be my final tweet format I can use on Twitter to let folks see & know what my most recent blog posts are (see above). I of course tweet the individual blog posts themselves out, often using them here in my posts. But I felt the need for a more inclusive, easy to change to keep up-to-date format and after some earlier incarnations, this tweet above may work for me for awhile, changing the screen shot of my current blogs as needed 😊
Part 1, I showed my current pinned tweet and expressed I wanted something I could also keep current, plus how I used Twitter’s Tweetdeck to solve a lot of logistical problems for me, and that I hope to use Tweetdeck for also keeping a rotating tweet about my current blog posts. Tweetdeck is a very handy tool, free from Twitter, and something I hope they keep that way for us regular folk, lol!
Below is my 1st tweeted version, still searching for what I wanted to send out —
I like it, but the tall format didn’t show as well as Twitter’s horizontal format, at least on my time line, plus it seemed at the same time too minimal yet all scrunched up, lol! 😊
So I formatted a tweet similar to my pinned tweet.
Better, but still no cigar 😊
I had a few retweets by other folks of this version, but I still felt it was too top heavy and didn’t show the meat of the tweet enough, ie, the featured images for each of my current blog posts. So I tried this, using an updated screenshot of my then current blog posts —
Much better I think. Cleaner. A little more blog post variability visible in terms of the featured image for each post didn’t hurt either. And the image-update was also updated to reflect that.
But I hadn’t chunked all my former material 😊
Here’s a screenshot of my workspace for this new blog post tweet format via Affinity Photo. The red lines I “marked up” via my iPad highlight material that’s “unchecked”, meaning not visible on my work space unless I re-click them. I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna want that small scrunched up header atop my featured images, or the old featured images screenshot for 10.09.21, but it won’t cost me much to keep them for now.
Below, is my final (meaning current) full tweet format, complete with text within my tweet above the graphic I’d created in Affinity Photo (built to be easily updated then posted on Tweetdeck). It’s the same one as my top image. Looks like it’s already gotten a few retweets since posting it so I could also have the tweet url to be able to post it here 😊 —
I took a screenshot of the full tweet on Twitter, and am also using it as my featured image for this post. Pretty neat!
It, the full tweet image as visible on Twitter, will now itself be one of my blog post featured images seen on an updated version of this new tweet format I have saved on Affinity Photo! Amazing & even neater, lol!
Who knows – one day, I may decided to have this tweet version (updated of course) as my pinned tweet, and just point to my images on Fine Art America via my blog posts & random tweets..and see how that works ☺️
That’s it for now – stay well everyone! Even here in Austin we’re moving into the top tier of Stage 3 (Covid alert), a slight restriction-release from Stages 4 & 5 💕

- November 30, 2021 – My Idea for Promoting My WordPress Blog Posts on Twitter (With My Pinned Tweet), Part 4And so far, I’m very pleased with how it’s working. It’s saving me a bit of time, yet also keeping tweets going out promoting my more recent posts. I could probably do with slightly more frequently….
- November 29, 2021 – Fine Art America News : “Easy Morning” and “Walking in Light” Featured in Art Groups + Sold a “If Dads Were” Coffee CupBoth figures in the painting above and below are watercolors, though, Easy Morning is all watercolor on absorbent ground. Walking in Light’s paint, around the figure below, is acrylic; both the watercolor figure and remainder of my painting done on Golden’s Light Molding Paste. Golden has evidently been at improving acrylics a long time, as I learned in this post (with links to Golden’s article), and I can say that for me, working on their molding paste, in watercolor and acrylic, is a real treat!
- November 28, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image This Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Heart FragmentIf it was an amazing process to see older photos and artwork show up on my most viewed list last week (and it was 😊) then this batch is incredible! Work from so many years have shown up, and such a variety! It tells me, one can never quite tell what folks might be looking for day to day, week to week, and it’s nice for me to have the inventory assortment, “almost” a historical diary, of my work
- November 27, 2021 – LOL! I Don’t Like It, But I WANT It! : Preparing More Paintings and Applications for Places to Show and Sell!!I squashed together what I could to show a “fair” sampling of my work recently finished or in-progress right now. There’s more, tucked here and there among these, lol! And on another wall! I choose to consider that a good problem 😊 Seeing these together like tis, If I had to choose one thing tying them all together – the impressionist skews, the abstracted slants, the washes, the thick tones, the high key and (nearly) BW work – I’d say it’s….
- November 26, 2021 – Working on Paintings; In-Progress : 2 New Lay-ins ( “Heart Fragment” and “Approach” ) Based on Details from Two Existing PaintingsThis has been something I’ve toyed with and talked about for a bit now — finding / picking a detail fragment of an existing painting (or photo etc) from which to base new work on. And I shoulda caught on to how well this might work for me, in terms of creativity and viewership, with my success with a related project where I painted an abstracted detail from an existing painting to create a new related one. That happened with Abstract Study 1 shown at the bottom of this post.
- November 25, 2021 – Happy Thanksgiving 2021!!Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m posting the same header as last year, Norman Rockwell’s “Freedom From Want” oil on canvas from 1943, smack in the middle of the 2nd World War.
- November 24, 2021 – Working on Paintings; In-Progress : Valentines 2022, In-Progress Since Early October, lol!Not quite finished, but looking fairly good, especially considering back in early October I thought, “Yeah, I can finish this quick then save it for early next year.” Now, I’m thinking, really? Will I really finally get this finished by January next year, lol!
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
