It is a beautiful day but I missed the morning light so I can’t get to the next layer of my current painting. So much to do all the time and I am trying hard to catch up while the computer fights me.
This morning it decided to just spin and spin and spin so I had to turn it off. Can’t click on the restart button if it is spinning. When I turned it back on that little line partly filled up but I didn’t think it would ever completely finish. I wish my computer liked me more.
Maybe computers don’t like artists that work in the old fashioned way of applying paint to a canvas rather than using a computer for paintings on paper. Computer art is just not for me even though I see some great examples every day. I much prefer to apply layers and then get to a final layer that has a unique elevated surface.
Anyway, tomorrow I hope to get to my new lake painting. It will be another sunset and only 8″ x 10″ so I won’t be intimidated by the cost of paint. It is hard to believe there was a time when I painted in such thin layers that the cost of the paint was not an issue at all. Not anymore!
The virus stats in our area are increasing by quite a bit every day and there are more hospital stays and deaths.
Please wear a mask. If you think they are not necessary, just humor the rest of us! It is the nice thing to do. Be nice!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler
Lots of Backyardica these days for Clyde. I think he has put on a few pounds. He doesn’t think so but he looks a little bigger around the middle.
We both saw this fun weight comment on my Twitter feed.
I tried on a pair of pants that were too tight. I don’t believe it. I am declaring widespread fraud.
