One great thing about Social Media is that a lot of what I do to keep up with it can be done while I talk on the phone. Just finished a good conversation with my brother while I got a lot of computer chores done.
Always like to talk with him about computer stuff. He has a doctorate in Computer Science so he is not next door to clueless about this helpful but aggravating device.
Cheers on a Friday! Good Friday is you celebrate it!

Roads are great now but a lot of surrounding areas will not have power for a few more days! What a Spring storm! Our power was only off for a few hours. We certainly have had it easy compared to some. I hope that was the end of the winter weather that showed up late.
Fifteen inches of snow! Wow! Radford City is great about snow removal. We were able to get out by early afternoon. Not sure how many times the plow came through but I know it was more than twice! Where I come from if you want the snow off the street you had better pick up a shovel and get to it!
Not looking forward to being snowed in tomorrow! I hope the forecast does not come true. If it does I am putting on some boots and walking around in it. I have not done that for a long time and I always used to say if we have to have winter it should come with snow. It really is beautiful and Radford is great about clearing the roads. Maybe Spring will show up on Monday!
I am dragging today. So much to do and I have been real slow at getting to anything. Laundry and dishes are done but the computer is laughing and pointing the mouse at me. Got to get back to typing and clicking my fingers off. Yikes!

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 am real pleased to sell another New River painting to a great VA patron! The same patron that commissioned me to paint an enlargement of Wading bought New River Spring. That will make four paintings for him!
Most people that buy my paintings buy more than one. Great to have repeat patrons! As always, large and small wall art prints and prints on just about anything available on my website. Be sure to click the link under the painting to see all the possibilities!

I am excited about my new genre painting of a man fishing at Pawleys Island on the marsh side. I have completed two stages of it and after I make another video for Youtube I will start on the third but the second is close to what I want!
The colors and textures seem more spontaneous than usual as I try to not over think the work which is very hard. Anyway, looking forward to working on it tomorrow!

As I have mentioned before Clyde goes to bed much earlier than me. He has to get up at 4:00 and I don’t sleep well. I have learned that if I stay up late I will sleep better. Just wish I didn’t have to get up at 7:30.
Anyway, oftentimes when I come into the bedroom I notice that Clyde is asleep with a smile on his face. I asked him about that and he said maybe it is because he is basically happy for a sad sack curmudgeon.
Well, I guess if you are a curmudgeon it certainly helps to be a happy one!
If you like my work but don’t have any more room on your walls be sure to check out my paintings on just about anything but the kitchen sink on
I am real pleased to sell another print of Fall on the New River to a great VA patron! This is my most popular New River painting. A great NC patron owns the original.
Working hard on my latest Pawleys Island oil painting. So glad to be back to oils. The only problem is I am low on paint and a number of the tubes I use are now $50. Yikes! Got to sell or I can’t paint.
