Bear with me please

at this point and time. I am trying and working, trying to establish an online domain with WordPress. After using the blog for one year so far has made me realize that  I need to do this. Soon I will have more posts and other photos of my gardens and plants with other stuff. So…

Winter Memories and the Grinch

I remember the past winters and Christmases of my youth. I remember the snow falling, icicles forming in cold winters near the eves of our small bungalow house. I remember the tobogganing, skiing and skating on outdoor rinks any time of the day, weaving in and out of so-called hockey players pretending to be their…

OILS

Just recently with a very warm day. I had decided to paint with oils outside on my porch. Done the shopping early, kitchen cleanup – house, it can wait, dishes too, bills – another day. I want to paint! Hell with it! So I gathered my materials, up and down the stairs, 4 times? I…

\updates and weeds

  Okay. Staycation is officially over as of 2 weeks ago and in some ways a success and in others,  a complete bust. I did do a lot of paintings and drawings, but most of it came out as mud and experimental (to be unseen by the public eyes). Actually I really enjoyed it, choosing…

Staycation vs Flu Bug

        I’ve put in some time off this summer from work. I am planning on working on painting drawing and my vegetable garden. So far I am planning in my head of what materials to use and subjects to paint. I really should write them down so I do not get distracted!…

My apologies

Lately with the warmer weather, I am concentrating on the outside instead of my drawings and paintings. I should really do more than working outside. Laughing Man is originally done in 1986 in a print class. It was really my first try and it came out good. Now, I can see that it could be…

Castle Keep

I am dreaming, dreams of a fallen, sunken castle keep for the past few weeks. Cliffs, skies, water and a castle keep that fallen to the ground. A hidden one, that cannot be seen from above near the cliffs edge, of a past living castle keep and it is lost to the hidden areas of…

January 2016

Another year is gone and another comes in by a blast of old man winter’s sneeze, and coughs. Recently, I went through more of my old art projects, and found that most of them now to me feel incomplete. Perhaps years ago, they were complete to me, now they are not, some I had forgotten…

December 2015
