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.
Last year this time we weren’t sure where we’d be today in terms of a vaccine for Covid-19. We are blessed indeed to have the opportunity to vaccinate most of the population now, down to age 5 I think! 🙏
With global warming and pandemic related supply chain issues, we’ve plenty to be concerned with.
But with the recently signed infrastructure bill, and the social package bill nearly ready to be signed, both the above issues and many others, will finally, for the 1st time since the 1950s evidently (esp infrastructure), begin to be addressed!
Now that’s a chunk to be thankful for 💕
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Stay safe, stay well! ♥️

- December 02, 2021 – My Minimalist Art Experiment, “Abstract Minimalism 1 (in-progress) Part 2, Major ShiftThe large blue area (which I loved) had to be muted (or change the other orange/red areas).

- December 01, 2021 – My Minimalist Art Experiment, “Abstract Minimalism 1 (in-progress) Part 1, a BeginningA funny thing happened on my way to my newest attempt to correctly ( ie, satisfyingly ) extrapolate a detail shot ( variations of which I’m calling, “Approach” ) of one of my paintings (Autumn Passage) — — during the 2nd lay-in, after applying Light Molding Paste over the canvas, I ended up, when I’d see it from a distance, ie through a door from another room, very much liking its basic look; enough so I decided to try and enhance the current stage of the painting, yet, keep it’s basic minimalism intact 😊
