Wordless Wednesday

Okay, I’m “borrowing” this idea from another blog today as there seems to be a lack or original thought at my end.

Making Due

Pandemic, shortage of Art Supplies and the lunacy of those around us who question if it’s all real; it’s enough to make any of us turn to blogging as a form of therapy.

I’m of the school where you simply make due with whatever is on hand. It may not be much and require compromise but at least it keeps everything moving forward.

Snow in April

It seems Mother Nature wants to delay outdoor painting efforts for just a little longer. It’s just a one day event that will likely be gone within 24 hours but what a sight to see while starting the morning coffee.

April Showers?

Tree in Greyscale

Just a little photography from a few weeks ago when we had the opportunity to still stroll around in the open parkland.

Done!

I have hereby had my first of two vaccine shots. The whole appointment was uneventful and rather dull but at least it was on-time.

Still have to follow guidelines until everyone is far enough out of the pandemic woods but at least it’s a step forward. Only been 2 hours since the injection so now’s the time to see if there’s any discomfort or fatigue. Time will tell.

Personally I’m looking forward to participating in live gallery shows with an attending public once again!

A little something to symbolize our coming freedom!

Vaccine Time Approaches…

Just passing time as the last hours count down to the first vaccination shot. For some reason I was a little apprehensive last night; like a child who has to go for their very first shot at the doctor’s office. Now I’m more bored than anything else as there’s very little to do now and best not schedule anything major afterwards.

Imagining my vaccination will be administered by this character!

Progress!

Not at all art related but tomorrow I’ll be receiving the first of two vaccination shots. Sure, precautions are still going to be followed to the letter but I’m not going to complain about progress.

Out of respect for all here I pledge to try not to cry during the actual injection. At least I’ll try.

Spring Sprout

Being another slight chilly and very wet grey day I sought out something/anything to spark my imagination. Seems in recent months that outlet has become photography. I certainly have no aspirations to change direction away from abstract painting but having a variety of interests never hurts.

I’m usually looking at things we see everyday and trying to find a new approach. Sometimes it works but other times many photos are eventually deleted. It’s an ongoing trial and error process.

This morning was no different.

Again??

I’ll start out by pledging not to whine on incessantly about this being yet another cold and rainy day. Art production will resume in due time.

I believe this little specimen serves well as an example how I’m looking at the whole situation…

Ouch!

Not being able to paint on a regular basis during the colder season has felt very uncomfortable to say the least. Just trying to figure out how best to describe it…

Perhaps “The Chair” provides the best example.
