Back in the Studio

Back in the Studio

Sep 2, 2022, Tues — At long last! I am back in the studio. I’m almost done composing the new Napa Valley painting. It will feature Mt. St. Helena at sunset, which looks like a mountain of pink champagne. I’m excited to start with first paint, possibly tomorrow. 

My goodness, I’m tired. This seems to be a common theme of my blog. Probably the most frequent words are tired, exhausted, and whipped. That’s because I do my blog last when I am totally whipped. It’s a recap of my day. Or nightcap in this case. The non-alcoholic version. Which definitely has the effect of putting me to sleep.  

I’ve no idea what’s going to come out of these tapping fingers to fill up the 300 words needed to make the little man happy. The bigger question is why do I care about the little man? Oh, hah! Not a big question at all. It’s the SEO stupid.

Okay, do I have an actual big question? No, not really. Can I sleep now? That does not count.

Let’s see… utter blank tonight. This is disturbing! 

It’s got to be something blog-appropriate of course. Which is part of the problem. I can’t spill the beans about other people — and what is life but a journey with other people?

Were you micro dosing?

Oh! Here’s something. A gal on FB commented today on the Monterey Beauty post. She wrote, “OMG, were you micro dosing?” I wrote back, “No! But you are hilarious.” This isn’t the first time people have told me my paintings look like how they perceive nature on psychedelics. I thought everyone saw the world like this, but I’ve had enough comments to see that that is not necessarily the case. Which makes me wonder, do I have more cones in my eyes? (As a scientific explanation.) Or is it my love and connection to Nature that makes me see it this way — as Super Nature? I’m not sure. But it is so alive and vibrant that it blows my socks off. I can be annoying to hike with for the constant swooning. I am definitely in love.

Back in the studio today. Yay! Second best place to be if you want to be with Super Nature. In closing, I invite you to browse my originals gallery. And sign up for my newsletter.
