back in the old days, like say five years ago, i’d be spending my September Saturday rolling the firewood out of the back 50 using the wheelbarrow. what a work out that was and some mighty fine looking arms, shoulders, back, the whole kit and ka boodle, tuned up nicely, from that gig! and a wonderful way to spend an autumn day too, walking in and out of there in peace, with good old Poochie on point.

we’re a long way from that out here in the wilds of O Town. it’s a mighty fine sunny morning, cool too, but zero chores involving any heavy lifting.

truth is there are a lot of unfinished paintings in here, and all they need is another half hour each to become something. why they’re sitting where they are, going on fifteen weeks now… kind of does scare up some questions.

with this virus crap running all the good folks upside crazy, and shutting down all the fun stuff like festivals and the Saturday night club scene, art show and sales opportunities too, it, for me anyway, takes the wind out of my art making sails. that brand new paint i’m trying to figure out: Golden Acrylics, Series 1, is sitting here, waiting to go. and sad to say, it is gathering dust!

and we’re in the city now, for the long haul. summer is OVER! we had our chance. but i feel pretty good about those 20 plus days in July and August. i maxed those ones! thank goodness for a thousand photos from said adventure!

the road home

oh my goodness yes, and we kept a journal through it all! the day i snapped this one, a loverly walk it was, the 2 miles up to town. what a day!

at home

and the waterfall will be there when i get back. that is one thing we can count on for sure. in a time when you never know anymore what you can count on, especially over here, looking back at times, is a relaxing thing.

the art stash less one

so we have a bunch of them on the walls here. and a bunch of them, like i said, in need of just a short 30 minutes, all over the place, plus the guitars, microphones, GarageBand, short stories to write, etc., man we have got to get busy! this is quite unlike rolling the wood out of the back 50!

i can’t imagine walking through the National Gallery with a face mask on…

i miss walking through the collection over there at the NGC. but there is a collection here and some motivation!

Tehkummah Scenes, acrylic on canvas board, 7×9 inches.

we can’t do our art bridge paintings over here, that is what the Tehkummah Scenes series is all about: art bridging! but thank goodness we have a few here we can enjoy.

Bear Clan, acrylic on canvas board, 16×20 inches.

we have a call up for one of these, not too big, 18×24 inches, and hopefully i can get this Golden Acrylics figured out! we’ll start on that today: figuring out that Golden, maybe on said 18×24.
