The week in nature shots

At Canemah Doe with two fawns… This stream is not even a trickle… Pretty little thistle… Katydid? At Metro rehab site Water levels are low… Lots of fish fry in the water. Dry and windy…

Smokey and dry with a chance of painting

As I mentioned in my last post, I am a bit side-lined right now with an injured shoulder (for those that inquired, it is not a dramatic story, just a flare up of a wear-and-tear injury I’ve had for years.) With almost everything involving my arms off the table (knitting, spinning, weeding, going out to …

No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth

It’s been a couple of weeks since I have updated the blog. Part of that has been I’ve just been trying to give myself a break, and part of that is that I’ve been super busy. So here’s a catch up and I’ll try to post something a little more relevant and art related soon. …

A non-artistic week

This week has been a big goose egg as far as artistic endeavers go. I wasn’t feeling well for most of it, and though I did go to critique group on Thursday, I still haven’t taken their suggestions, so I have nothing to show you there. This (three day) weekend I have been hard at …

A weekend… spent

There are some weekends that are so enjoyable you wish you could do over again. And then there are weekends like this. Saturday morning: Golf When my dad died a few months ago, I took his golf clubs and various golf things. When I was in high school I played a lot of golf, usually …

The “free” weekend

So, unusually, I had a free weekend. I had nothing scheduled, nothing to go to, nothing committed. For once, I wasn’t behind on some project and most things were in a stable state. What should I do? Too much. Saturday I got up and went to the farmer’s market, then headed out to Sound Equine …
