Let It Rain

Seems we’re in the midst of a rainy season for sure. More often than not there’s some kind of downpour happening. It presents a challenge when I want to get painting but offers some great opportunities for photography.

Even with a rejection rate well over 90% it seems my art efforts are occasionally experiencing better rewards than most other aspects of life.

A sample of proof arrived only moments ago…

A small break in an otherwise dark time.
Abstract Art

Perhaps it was boredom or the need to simply be up to no good but today was the ideal time to explore a little shameless Instagram self-promotion. There’s no way I’m going to pay them or anyone else for efforts that would result in marginal results at best. Besides, I’m a Starving Artist!!

So, in an effort to inject a little extra humor into and otherwise straightforward art blog I posted the following…

Attention: I need to reach 10k followers in 48 hours or they send me back to the salt mines just outside of Narnia. This time they may not be kidding!
In the meantime, here’s a painting-
138 – 2018

It’s been roughly three hours so far and I’ve accumulated 23 “likes” but, alas, no new followers. Guess I’d better get used to creating abstract art in that Salt Mine!
