Wishing for A Happier New Year2021For All

Difficult days ahead.

I’m cold, my little space heater isn’t keeping the RV warm so Charley and I are under the covers of my electric blanket, my hands are cold typing here and I have on the big bath robe I bought for $3 at our patio sale a few months ago, need to put on socks.

I haven’t spent much time in the studio lately but I could, a friend gave me a heater he didn’t need and it warms up that space pretty well (great friends I have here) But the studio feels cold, not comfy or inviting and I have most of what I need for painting in here though it gets pretty cramped. I’m using my kitchen cart and have it full of paint, I want to paint something for my son, maybe trees he’s not a fan of the abstract.

My daughters have received my gift place mats, 11 by 14 panels painted and finished with resin. My resin didn’t turn great, got bubbles don’t know why but I’m not having great results with the resin lately. ‘Thanks they are beautiful’ was one response, the other was “we got them thanks” I kinda liked them but we have different appreciation for the abstract. I guess I enjoy the abstract because I really can’t draw worth a damn. I do think that if you saw them at a high end store you would think they are very cool,

alas I am an artist under appreciated by family , when I’m dead will they value my gifts? Are you laughing? I am, just disregard those silly words, I have no greater appreciation for my own work than anyone else.

For me painting is fun, I like combining colors and shapes, sometimes they come together well and other times they don’t, no one is begging me for a painting, I just force them onto family and friends as I don’t have space to keep them all! For example I have this at my entry door and I love it but it’s pretty fierce and not something most would put at their door. Entering guests would know something about you just stepping in seeing this bit of art.

Love my red wall?

  2. Hi, I’m new to WordPress and not really sure how I found you but I’m enjoying your posts. I too am a wanna be artist, so a kindred soul I guess. We are just now retiring and traveling across the country, we’ve gone from Indiana to Virginia and now are in Arizona. I would love to have you follow my blog, macontheroad.org
    I have high hopes of starting to paint again. I’ve brought acylics and water colors, brushes and all the paints in our 23ft travel trailer!
    Your work is good, it has life and emotion. And really if you enjoy it, what else matters.
    Donna or Mac if you want to call me by my nic name 🙂
