Despite have a really interesting reblog / review post on an interview held with a top Abstract Expressionist ( preserved at the Smithsonian ), things have gotten so bad in terms of infections I felt I had to do what I’ve done several times this last two years, bring you current status news about the pandemic virus, again via Twitter tweets one can click on and follow, like, retweet, or even respond to.
I’ve lost more than a handful of close to intensely personal people to this virus, some of whom were so compromised they couldn’t even take the shots because their systems were so compromised, some who wouldn’t take the vaccine, and some who did but still succumbed.
What you choose to do, or have chosen to do, or will choose, is your prerogative, though not necessarily without repercussions to others, including those who might care for you quite a bit. I can’t personally do anything about that.
I can though, bring you what seems to me important current information, and let you either slough it off, pin it to your memory as information to be considered, or readily agree it’s information worth sharing.
We do our parts, for better or worse, like marriages. For I believe humanity is wedded to itself. Maybe the way it always has, but certainly more visibly, more globally, than any time we’ve been aware of.
Whatever you may choose to do the remainder of this holiday season and into the new year, I only wish you the best. No, I wish us all the best. Stay well as you can. Help yourself, and help those you care for….
Remember, you can add your voice, your thoughts, to any of these tweets if you are on Twitter simply by clicking the tweet —
Take care everyone! Make your choices with you and those you love in mind ❤️

- January 24, 2022 – New 12×24 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Pink Impressionist Abstract 1My newest panoramic impressionist abstract color block on a 12×24 gallery wrapped canvas is – Pink! 😊 And my one line description for this art work on it’s page at Fine Art America reads —
- 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! 😊
