I’m in semi-shock! My photography was the dominant winner for most views on Fine Art America the 3rd week of December! Just goes to show one never knows, lol!
I do think that, Birds and Fun at Butler Park, one of my favorite shots among several pics I captured at Butler Park here in Austin, is one of my best. Pure accident, I saw birds nearby as I was heading home, similar to my scenarios when I captured Good Morning Bird and what I now call Pink Austin Sunset.
I literally turned back to “try” for one last shot before heading home, the birds must’ve caught my motion, and they rose in unison with my turn and snap of the shutter.
Wonderful luck! I’ll take it! 😊
There’s also, I think, a striking similarity / continuity of this action so-lucky shot and my more recent abstract work, including last week’s most viewed and this past week’s 1st art work to show up as most viewed among the photos.
Though Abstract Minimalism 2 below is, well, abstract, lol! – the blue forms within the larger color field have, I think, a distinct “bird” in flight feel to them —
- Abstract Minimalism 2 – 18×24 acrylic on Light Molding Paste on canvas, circa Nov 2021

And below, is a good shot of my top 12 most viewed —
And though only 1/2 my most viewed of my top 12 were paintings, art work is my dominant preferred creative route, even though photography ( and writing ), thank goodness, have both been there to hold and bolster me during painting droughts the last 4+ decades ❤️
And if some of some my art work eventually catches up to my perennially ( Paris / Austin / Vermont ) top showing photos since I began with Fine Art America the spring of 2016, then I’ll have even more to be grateful for ☺️
Stay well everyone! 💕

- 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.
- January 17, 2022 – Art Delivery to Cypress Grill Austin for a Creative Arts Society Rotating Member ShowingI’m happy to post I’m placing my 1st piece of art work at a Creative Arts Society member venue in over a year and a half!
- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.

- January 14, 2022 – Painting + Capturing Photos of the Sides of 2 #ImpressionistAbstract Panoramas Accepted by Art for the People Gallery AustinA few posts ago I announced about my art audition for an upcoming show at Austin local gallery, Art for the People, and mentioned I’d had a couple of my Impressionist Abstract panoramas chosen! One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting! Why?
- January 13, 2022 – 2 New Works In-Progress : Good Conversation + Healthy Vines Happy Hearts – #AbstractPainting #LyricalAbstraction #TheAdjacentPossibleWasn’t sure what I wanted to paint this particular day, just really needed to 😊 I’ve been reading a creativity book, The Adjacent Possible; filled with good ideas, one of which emphasizes “just starting.” A concept the author calls zero to 1, which she explains is like this huge leap, from nothing, to something. She says it over and over, all different ways, and I understood it. First intellectually. Then emotionally. And today, physically.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
