Rolling Up The Sleeves

Sometimes investing a little time today can reap benefits for a long time to come. When you’re sure of the rewards to come it makes the initial effort so much easier to carry out. The past couple of days have been just such a case.

While conditions were certainly ideal for artistic pursuits there were matters which required immediate attention so priorities had to be addressed. Fortunately the hours of manual labour applied means an easier time for many months to come. It was time well spent.

Tasks were carried out and completed successfully with a little time left to prepare the room where summer painting is optimal. During the colder months it reverts back into a basically unremarkable living space. Such a preparation effort can be therapeutic when transitioning into full painting mode. With a few more touches in the morning everything will be complete and my own brand of creative chaos can begin.

Let the games begin…

Just one of the nasty characters which had to be dealt with decisively.
Mild Rant


I can’t speak for anyone else but ever since the pandemic started there seems to be an over abundance of time each and every day. My schedule hasn’t greatly changed since before all this so the explanation requires further analysis.

Personally, it may simply be the lack of outdoor painting that has everything thrown off. Tried to create an indoor strategy but nothing seemed to take hold. Been trying my hand at photography with my trusted iPhone but there’s likely an official limit to how many pictures we’re allowed to take of a single tree or chair. Social media has proven there’s no such limit on selfies.

So I continue my quest to be a productive member of society or at least the household. At this point I may have to pass time photographing other people’s trees.
