Well, I finally decided on my next oil painting and started on it yesterday.  I am going to paint a creative interpretation of a flower garden.  I was thinking of another wildflower painting but changed my mind.  I am working from a photograph that I took of part of a flower garden and will greatly change it. 

The photograph will mostly provide some ot the spacing and the types of flowers but I will provide my own expression and may even change the colors of the flowers.  I wish I could explain what I do but I can’t and it really doesn’t matter that much. 

It will be a creation of my own making based on something I saw that will work well with my intentions. It is always a journey from start to end no matter what direction I take. 

Be sure to check out this week’s youtube above! I decided to get back to my Skyline Beauty paintings and this first one is of a San Diego CA skyline.

Life with The Word and Bird Man- Clyde Kessler


I think I have mentioned before that when I was young I decided the best way to avoid having an alcohol problem was to not drink at all.  You can’t miss something you never had. 

I don’t say this to brag at all. I am just really into logic and I saw several of my Dad’s friends with a raging alcohol problem and I didn’t want to make life more difficult than it already is.  My Dad did not drink at all.

There is nothing wrong with it, I would rather just leave it alone and Clyde also has left it alone but his reason was much more personal.

Anyway, we two teetotalers got a big kick out of a funnie we saw on an old movie the other day.  One man was drinking and the other was not.

The one that was not drinking said, “I don’t think drinking drowns problems.  It just teaches them to swim.”

I would greatly appreciate a Google review if you like my work!  Here is the link.
