I’m not pleased at all now that gradually there’s less daylight with each passing day. We’ve had enough of a time with one seriously rough winter season already. The cold in conjunction with a global pandemic made it challenging for all.
Time to once again accept a constantly changing reality and make the most of what we have.
With yesterday’s administration of a 2nd vaccine shot it’s safe to say we’re doing our part in the recovery. Still living in a state of heightened quarantine due to ongoing caregiver duties but it’s all worth it.
Good to see some restrictions being cautiously lifted provided everyone conducts themselves in a responsible manner. Only time will tell.
Until news arrives to do otherwise the masks stay in place and basic distancing guidelines are the rule of the day. Such a minor inconvenience considering all the good it will do for so many in the long run.

Fortunately yesterday’s unreasonable weather was short lived and now noticeably improved. Still slightly cold for my purposes but that’s scheduled to improve during the coming days do we’ll just have to be content with sunshine.
In a couple days painting should resume but the shortage of supplies has me concerned. We’re trying to gradually work back from the pandemic so I have to take my lumps just like everyone else.
Tried experimenting with different approaches and materials but the results just weren’t all that impressive. Once you work out a way to create something memorable it’s hard to settle for second best.
But they say patience has it’s rewards so I’ll have to simply work away at planning and taking the occasional photo.
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.
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!
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.
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.
In an effort to enhance my “reputation” as a well-rounded and worldly artist I’ve decided to dedicating this afternoon to touring Edward’s Gardens – a local site well known for the variety of expertly maintained horticulture.
We know inspiration can be found in a variety of places and I definitely have to look away from the canvas at times so now is as good a time as any.
Always armed with my trusted iPhone camera the plants, sunshine & fresh air will not go to waste. Local guidelines allow for just such an excursion provided a couple of simple rules are observed; a small price to pay given the potential rewards,
In closing, try to make the most of your day and I’ll try not to overload you with a tsunami of flower photos at a later date. Deal?
