ALL SEASONS – NATURE PAINTS ITSELF


Looking at the whole link list of last week I could not be more proud of your images. This weekly link list has become my weekly delight and joy to view your posts and read about your experiences. Cannot say it enough: all of you also have greatly improved your photographic skills!

This week the photo link list (click on bottom where it says “Click Here” opens up a new page) to enter your url etc. for your photo link. Please let me know if it is a foreign language to you, and I’ll walk you through it.
The photo link is open this week from Sunday March 28 – Friday April 3, noon, California time

A PERSONAL NOTE – was daily in my cold studio during the snow for at least an hour to practice my guitar skills. Then I went home to fix my mistakes on two complicated 36 x 36 paintings that I have delayed to finish for longer than a year. This pause- crisis time, or however you like to call it – has one advantage: more time! It forced me to look at some painting problems I have been avoiding.
Every painting has one or more problems that the artist needs to solve – in these, it had to do with un-politicizing the subject  You will understand when I’ll post them in the future. Have you done something with your extra time?

THIS WEEK

 

 

Don’t understand why Nature has never won a prize with
its still life. You think we should give him one?

 

 

 

What about his sketches of the branches? It could have
been one of mine! That accounts for something, not?

 

 

 

How about this abstract. It looks like an encaustic
painting (it is a painting making use of wax
to glue patterns or objects) to me?
Maybe we should title it “Rocky Path” …

 

 

 

Tilting the head. Hand supporting the chin. One foot forward ….With a sqeaky voice, “Don’t know … maybe this Footstep
is my favorite….”

So, now you have been to my Snow Gallery, we
eat at my home. I live according to my adult children
“in the middle of nowhere” so, no viruses here.

 

 

Hubs had to change his diet for this health
– dairy and meat free, so I made this
butternut squash oven dish with onions
and spinach as a side dish with potatoes.
The only “sin” is the Parmesan and Jack cheese on top..

 

 

Not too bad, eh? Some more?

RECIPE

Ingredients

1-2 butternut squash
One whole onion – cut up
1 package of spinach (or more)
1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, dash of nutmeg

  1. I couldn’t think of what to do with some roasted butternut squash the other day, so I froze it. Now, you’ve give me an idea, Jesh. I can substitute red chard for the spinach. It’s been chilly in our area, even though the sun has been out. Your art snow gallery.tour was lots of fun. The positive side to this temporary shut down is the opportunity to take the time to enjoy nature and ourselves. Peace and love, Jesh.
