"Carion Crow" - watercolor & pastel (finished)

In the interest of getting a post out, this is going to be a random post.

  • How can it be November and just a week or so to Thanksgiving?
  • I think that means December and then January, which is a new year. I don’t remember doing a single goal this year.
  • Oh, good. I just looked at the list. I have done a few goal things.
  • My piece, “Leif, Lord of the Flickers” was accepted into the ISEA Member Only Juried Online Exhibition “Utterly Profound 2023”. It’s an online show. The link to this year’s show is scheduled to go live on November 15.
  • I painted more this week. I even broke out the pastels.



  • My gooddness. It’s really raining here.
  • I agreed to do a break-out session at the Spring WSO Convention. Working title: “Paris Tricks to Get Unstuck.”
  • I’m already tired from “the holidays.”
  • A favorite artist, Kate Dardine of Painted Wind Studio, is putting out a 20 days of Gratitude newsletter right now. In day 8, she put in this beautiful quote: “A stranger is a person in whom we have not yet found a part of ourselves.” – Luigina Sgarro, il confine di ghiaccio
  • I need to get a move on and enter Western Fed. November 27. Lots of time…
  • Maybe a goal for next year will be less procrastinating.
