I'm posting this a little early today. I'm afraid what my mood is going to degrade into as the evening progresses. Oh, the day started off fine. Then I listened to some truths and spoke some truths out into the world. Aren't I smarter than that? No one cares. Literally, no one cares. I would … Continue reading Let’s see what happens – Day 2
In my post two days ago, I mentioned that there was one start I had going that was basically mud. I thought it might be fun to have a progression painting here. Mind you, I have no idea if this is going to work out or not. Ready? Here we go. So here's where it … Continue reading Let’s see what happens
Yesterday when I logged in to write my blog, a notification popped up I wasn't expecting. Yep, it was my anniversary with WordPress. So it looks like I've been writing this WordPress blog for 13 years. That means I started in 2008. I honestly wasn't keeping track. I'm glad they were. I had to go … Continue reading Apparently it was my anniversary
As I mentioned in my blog yesterday, I've been in the painting mood lately. I'm certain there is a rhythm to the ups and downs of my creative tendencies, but I've never sat down to figure them out.

Something lurked outside my door, but I didn't know it. I stepped outside with my dog completely unsuspecting. Meanwhile, it waited patiently, silently. I should have felt its eyes on my back, but I didn't. It wasn't until I came back to the house that I saw it: This beautiful little praying mantis was hanging … Continue reading I was almost prey!
This is a hard post to write. Why? Because I see myself as never good enough. Writing a post like this demands that I admit it. People around me would be shocked if they knew how deeply this runs to my core. After all, I was valedictorian of my graduating class and voted most likely … Continue reading Never good enough?
Last week was an interesting one. On many levels. Firstly, I signed up for lifetime access to a bunch of learning materials for writers. I have only had a chance to watch part of the "Fear" videos -- what, me? Fear? OMG, yes, I do have some! -- and in that time I've already doubled … Continue reading Joyful
I'm finding it very hard to believe that 2020 is nearly over. I wish I could say I was glad, but really I feel like we have a long road ahead of us still with COVID-19. Oh, I think we'll recover and life will go back to the way it was (more or less, because … Continue reading Space 2020-6
In my last post, I told you all about ACEO's and my little miniature artworks. Today, I won't keep your attention for quite so long and I'll just let you get to where you want to be: looking at the artwork.
