Another new release becomes my most viewed image on Fine Art America, this for the 1st week in December 2021 😊
Not all new releases become most viewed the week they’re released, and for awhile, even that was a rarity; lately though, it occurred enough for me to notice, lol!
Is my work getting better? Are the magic algorithms at work different? Is my image marketing via blog posts & twitter driving more interest that direction? I sure don’t know, but I’ll take it at face value and accept it as a good thing 🙏
#2 most viewed, Abstract Minimalism 2, is one I’m really proud of as it comes closest to coming out the way I actually intended! It’s very minimal, soft with just a few dark/light strong contrasts, lots of color modulation in the light high tones, and pretty minimal til you get close to the surface where there’s all kinds of stuff going on, lol! And I just recently read some quotes via the artist, Joan Mitchell (of whom I’ve posted about before) where she explained how important the surface area was to her work; so that was a sorta-virtual validation of my own interests via someone totally unconnected to me personally – and that’s kinda nice ❤️
- Abstract Minimalism 2 – 18×24 acrylic on Light Molding Paste on canvas, circa Nov 2021

There’ll be a day again I’m sure where I’ll again list related blog posts for each of my top 12 most viewed; but for right now….yeah, ya’ll know the drill — lots of holiday stuff, lots of painting getting done, and trying to also stay healthy and (somewhat) fit ☺️
Stay well everyone! The new Covid variant, Omicron, seems to be getting a toehold, let’s keep it full length from us, for sure! 💕

- January 23, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Blue Impressionist Abstract 1 – New 12×24 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingIt’s kinda neat how these impressionist abstract panoramas I’ve been working on conjure up so many varying images, or at least semi-suggested images, lol! I see waves and sky and beach, the horizon line shifting from lower 1/3 to upper 1/3 depending how I squint 😊 Working bottom to top, I can even see….
- January 22, 2022 – Rethinking (re-engineering?) How I Post About Images I Upload to #FineArtAmericaMy most emerging challenge as I ramp up being able to and wanting to paint more often – each day if possible – is time. Not a big surprise for all the folks with lots of interests and/or commitments, even for us 70+ year olds, lol! Though, surprisingly, just as difficult to navigate the demands and siren calls of attention in our lives. Kinda nice though, that kind of problem has persisted from when….
- January 21, 2022 – New 16×20 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Healthy Vines Happy HeartsA relatively simple work with a slightly more complex arrangement of paint application than my usual. That’s a mouthful, lol! But pretty accurate in term of my process! 😊 First, I laid in a faint yellow base, a mix of watercolor and acrylic. Next I laid over a….
- January 20, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 2As mentioned in my prev post, my then problem and now radical solution in re to a painting I’d struggled with, done the most I felt I could, and was still quite unhappy with, began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, re listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….
- January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
- January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne MizeDianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
