I’d hope to get a nicely detailed post with lots of images to discuss, as much as a regular citizen w/out much input or info can do, how this month’s winter storm compares to last year’s ( literally ) deadly ice freeze, and I will, but it looks to be for tomorrow ( Monday ) now.
Our car battery seems to be recovering nicely; let’s hope it holds. And our bolstered cable connections are ticking along nicely.
But – just as I was nodding off last night ( Saturday ) I noticed an alert that we here in Austin are now in a boil-water notice for the next few days. Lots of reassurances it had nothing to do with the lingering winter storm weather, but I don’t know. We’re kinda gun-shy now ’bout a lot of things, lol!
At least we were stocked up fairly well with water ’cause of anticipating / preparing for the worst ala last year’s winter storm 🙏
Tomorrow’s post should feature a 5-6 day temperature range for a comparison look at both this and last year’s temperature ranges and durations and will feature Austin of course, but also Houston, Galveston, Brownsville, and San Antonio. I’m sure there’s some more or less dramatic differences for further east and west, but not including ( I believe ) Beaumont or El Paso, who happen to think it’s good to instead be part of the US power grid system 😊
Til then, I’m working on that larger post, uploading data shot pics, tagging the images in my media folder here on WordPress, and – happy to say – hoping to take a walk outdoors with Sheila this afternoon ❤️
Stay warm everyone, or maybe more accurately, more comfortable! 💕
ps – here’s an image of a tiny section of a 50 mile backup in the Texas Hill Country couple days ago due to ice / road conditions —

- May 17, 2022 – I Have a Lot of Happenings ( art & personal ) This Week, But Still Finding Moments To Start a New Painting : Morning’s PromiseIt’s nice to dance the surface of my canvas as needed. And able ☺️ And right now, a light step, at an easy pace, may give me the time – and energy – to get more than a handful of other needed things also done this week. Not a bad compromise. For now 😊
- May 16, 2022 – New Diptych : “Freedom” Almost Finished, Panels Need Signing ( front & back )And what I’ve come across figuring out how to make prints of this that folks can work with, ie, close to or within standard size dimensions, was how to get a 22×28 image convert into – in 2 examples – an 8×10 or 12×18, and I came up with this as a starting prototype….
- May 15, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, “Spring Rising”I’d done a lot of deep or darker night-like paintings for a bit, so it felt pretty nice to lighten up my palette for awhile. Working back & forth, from the two approaches – playing the potential good from both approaches seems to suit my Libra middle, lol!
- May 14, 2022 – My 1st Classical Stretch Workout with Miranda Esmonde-White ( via YouTube ) in Many Months!Though similar to SilverSneakers’ classes, Miranda’s classes focus largely on making the fascia network in our bodies more fluid. Some movements are very similar, but more extended, dance-like, reflecting Miranda’s ballerina and dance background!
- May 13, 2022 – “Angel” in AVAA’s 1st Austin Art Space Gallery and Studio Group Show in a Long Time!Just a very quick post to announce that my 18×24 inch acrylic on stretched canvas, Angel – has been accepted into Austin Visual Arts Association’s ( AVAA) 1st group show since ( I believe ) the pandemic. Definitely been a long time coming and feels great to be able to be showing with this long time Austin art association again! 😊
- May 12, 2022 – Updated My #Twitter Header Image and Pinned TweetThough Twitter’s future is up in the air, or ether, or virtual landscape; and my own “footprint” there and social media in general is micro-whatever, lol! — it’s still my micro existence, and I want to care for it best I can 😊
- May 11, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Joan Mitchell, “I carry my landscapes around with me” – #Polyptychs…my reading of Joan Mitchell’s work – while often including much of that same connection, speaks more directly to me about the impact of the canvas before me in that process. Especially most specifically in regard to Joan’s work with multi-panel / multi-canvas works of art – ie, polyptychs!
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
