These pieces remind me of the phases of a day and the light playing through a forest . Interesting and surprising for me , combinations of colour. Each of these ‘stands’ are 48x24” .

It’s so nice to see the sun again. The combination of grey , wet skies and cool weather had my energy flagging.

Today I post this 18x18” home grown still life with shadows. It’s ‘a red letter day’ or a case of a ‘blind squirrel finding a nut’ day. It’s a day when I did the entire daily crossword myself . It happens a few times a year .

It’s a daily ritual that began a bunch years ago. My mom and I get the same newspaper delivered to our respective homes , work the puzzle and try to figure out where we’re stuck over the phone sometime in the afternoon.

Aside from that , I do like this painting and the crazy shadows.

This piece went to its new home today. Yay!

I’m very grateful to have ongoing support from my collectors because as always , my next piece is my ‘best’ piece . Let’s see what tomorrow will bring. I’m looking forward to sunnier days. Weather wise and pandemic wise .

Out of chaos comes ... an intervention. Lol , I need to be able to walk around. It’s an endless process of creating disasters and creating order.

Under construction or a work in
progress. You pick. 18x18”

I was listening to the Lavar button reads podcast . ‘The killer of kings’ by Anjali Sachdeva . Great story! It led me off on a tangent about Milton and all sorts of directions I was ignorant about . I love that good art can excite your imagination and intellect!

Back at it. Where will your imagination take you today ? Mine racing somewhere.
