My current genre painting is coming along so well I may have to pinch myself to see if I am dreaming! I am in the third stage and the brushwork and colors are singing! Painting can be such a difficult experience. The ones that have less arm wrestling are a wonderful journey! Hope to have the third stage done soon so I can add it to my portfolio!
I mailed Memphis Lights out yesterday and will begin a new commission today! A patron that owns two of my paintings wants an enlargement of one of my Suggestions paintings, Wading. These paintings are done on small pieces of cheap paper and I use cheap paint so I don’t offer the originals for sale, but great prints of them can be purchased. This patron wants an original so I am pleased to enlarge one with good paint on canvas.

Yes! I dodged another high costing medical procedure! My doctor says the pulsing and constricted ear problem is due to the extreme changes in weather! No ridiculously high MRI for me! I will just keep on yawning and ignore the pulsing.
Check out my latest Suggestion painting! I think the pears are doing a a dance, too!
Clyde will have his knee operation on the sixteenth. He can not take any form of aspirin until then and I am concerned that he will not be able to sleep. He can take tylenol but I doubt that will help much. It never helps me with any kind of pain. He says the pain is at its worst when he is lying down.
I told him that maybe he will have to try to sleep standing up like a horse and he said that we could glue him to the wall and see how that works out. I don’t think glue on his skin is a good idea.
Maybe we can use wall paper paste and seal him in the way Lucy thought she sealed Ethel in on one of the I Love Lucy episodes.
Let’s hope Clyde does as well as the cat below. Public domain kitty. I am no fool. I am fighting image thieves all the time.
I am very happy with the second stage of Lincoln. It may be the last stage. I will spend some time tweaking it but it probably won’t change that much. I have include both stages here and both stages are on my website for prints.
As I have mentioned before many times, I am not that great with computers but I am determined to learn and improve my skills. There are a number of things I can do to increase my audience for my artwork but when I try, I seem to go around in circles asking the computer and others how to do things that seem so simple.
Since Clyde has a computer job I ask him for advice. Right now I am trying to improve my SEO. When I asked him to help me with my SEO he said why do you need short eared owls?
Okay, what else would a bird watcher that does not have a website, is not on twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc. say? I had that one coming.
Please click on my latest Youtube! I will have another one up soon!
I am real pleased to sell a framed print of one of my favorite Dream paintings, Contemplation to a great Virginia patron! I live to paint and sometimes paintings show up in my dreams. I have painted a number of them and they are in my Dreamscape Folder on my website. Here is the link!
Today as we were coming back from the park there was a tail gator about to kiss our bumper. This car had very dark windows, so, as usual, I complained about dark windows. I think it is my right as a motorist to know whether or not other drivers are awake when driving near me.
Also, as usual, Clyde had something to say about driving rights. Much to my surprise we all have a constitutional right to carry a gun but a driver’s license is a privilege. He was born in August so when we got home he showed me the renewal form and sure enough, it does clearly say privilege.
I guess we should all carry a gun but not all of us are allowed to drive. I know a lot of people think that if we all had guns that would solve the mass shooting problem, but I think if we all have guns the terrorists will just start heaving bombs.
I am not going to carry a gun or a bomb but I would like car windows to be clear.
I wrote down three things I needed to do yesterday and didn’t do a single one of them. I remember years ago hearing my Dad say he had so many things on his mind. I now understand what he was talking about.
So much to do and so little time. Maybe I can get those three things done today in addition to the stuff I tackle every day. I don’t want the list to keep growing.
