A small thing, but the kind of small thing that keeps hope afloat! 🙏
I’m very grateful the City of Austin has a place like the Old Bakery and Emporium, an 1800s preserved & renovated historical site that displays the work of Austin area artists 50+ years young 😊
I won’t go into much more right now, the blog post link above ( below the image ) goes to a nice photo-poem blog post featuring this work. As noted yesterday, Sheila and I got our 2nd boosters, and I was fairly whacked yesterday afternoon & evening. That lingered with chills and feeling too hot alternating all day. This evening ( Friday, April 8th), I’m better, but feel like I overdid a thousand senior exercise classes in one day, lol!
Though I’m firmly working textural works right now, and “very” much loving it. I do think, with practice, ie, experimenting, work watercolor or watercolor-like acrylic work, esp of figures/butterflies etc, but within textural contexts. Conversely I can flip what the textural and watercolor-ish work center outward. So we’ll see if these are good ideas, or the effect of my booster-fueled fever-like waves of feeling hot then cold ☺️
Matter of fact, I basically finished an example of the latter, textured in the center & soft outward, and if I get a good shot of it tomorrow ( Saturday ) I’ll try and post it this Sunday. I really like it, but what gives me promise about it is, Sheila’s gone from “mew” to “hmmm, I like that!” Never argue with a spouse who cooks like a chef, lol! ❤️
Keep faith everyone!! 💕
Stay well everyone!
