Rain at Dawn

Early morning rain can lead to more reasonable temperatures, calmer breezes and near-perfect painting conditions for several days to come. Sure, the ground has to dry over the coming hours but after that the real fun starts!

Macro Practice

Heavier rain during recent days hasn’t helped the abstract painting efforts in the slightest but it has opened up opportunities to practice some iPhone photography skills.

This morning was a great chance to see how close I could get to a subject while remaining in focus. The results may be far from pro status but I’m a painter so we’ll have to settle with a rating of – passible.

Weather Report

Rained moderately throughout most the night resulting in a rather moist morning. This time I bring proof!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Everything todays seemed to fall into place just right so I was determined to make the most of it. Shortly after dawn saw hours dedicated to the all-important art pursuits which were carried out as far as I could take them at that stage.

Throughout the remainder of the day I could be found mowing the lawn, washing the car, taking care of laundry along with the regular obligations already in place. I’m almost sure there are other completed task which came and went but I’m not the kind to make lists of such things.

Usually each day starts with only a rough idea what may actually go on since procrastination is still one of my more dominant traits. Luckily things do fall into place and get done for the most part.

Took a couple minutes for creative photography and editing for my own amusement. Some would consider the subject matter questionable but sometimes testing boundaries can yield favourable results.

Hopefully after the sun sets I won’t be left with the usual feeling that not much was done with the day at all. We’ll find out shortly.

So many have been incredibly patient while I toil through our current situation but eventually persistence pays off.

Here today we have “Vaccination #2” measuring 30” x 40” on canvas.

Tried as I may it became apparent that there’s nothing which can be done to make this piece better.

Enjoy!

Just a peek at something I enjoy viewing daily during my travels. Spring has certainly turned things around and should bring a remarkable summer!

Forecast: Sunshine!!

Seems the near impossible is finally coming true with a full week of sunshine now upon us. With so much to do and only a limited number of hours a day this may require some scheduling gymnastics. Where there is a will..,
