Abstract Art Mild Rant

One Of Those Days

We’ve all had them from time to time; everything lines up right and all signals as “Go” but the motivation to do something about it just never happens. Today was one of those days.

Weather and schedule were to allow for many hours of art creativity and production but little time was actually used taking action. I’d be tempted to chalk it up to any number of non-art variables and likely I’d be at least partially right.

So there I was with waiting canvas and paints but the whole idea of pushing ahead didn’t appeal in the slightest. Eventually very little of the day was occupied doing what I should. Nature won’t be cooperating during the upcoming days so a forced break may actually work out for the better.

If you want the sun then occasionally you have to accept the rain.

The ideal summary of today’s creative efforts.

Seems some folks don’t care or are just plain forgetful…

We’re not out of the woods yet, folks!!

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.

The stupidity of the human race never ceases to amaze me. The guidelines for avoiding contracting & spreading the coronavirus are basic and easy to understand yet, given a choice, so many decide to do otherwise then act surprised when they end up ill with the virus.

It’s not all that difficult, folks!

Provided we all remain diligent until the pandemic is under control many of us can live long and productive lives. It just seems a multitude of morons can’t think that far ahead.

I’m one of the caregivers for an older couple, one with advanced Alzheimers the other battling Cancer, so there’s no room for error or compromise when it comes to this worldwide health crisis. If I contract COVID-19 then I might as well start planning and saving money for this couple’s funerals. Fairly basic logic there.

Just stick with the guidelines and remain guarded until doctors and health officials give us the approval to begin resuming more relaxed practices. It’s the least we all could do.

Get It Now??
