This is more than likely my last blog post, but ...

Be the first to see new paintings fresh off the easel by signing up for my New Art Alerts posted on my website.  You may also now securely purchase paintings there directly as well.

I've noticed that lots of art blogs are going by the wayside due to visuals like Instagram, etc.  The New Art Alerts feature on my website basically offers the same thing I'm doing with my blog which is showing the latest new art as it's developed.  Plus I'm not the greatest wordsmith in the world preferring to use all my time on art so after a lot of thought (and reading), I finally came to the conclusion to stop blogging.

Thanks to all those who've been there from the beginning and thanks for continuing on with me on this great art journey.  My heartfelt appreciation.

As it quotes in the last line of one of my favorite poems, 'Desiderata' by Max Ehrmann,  Strive to be happy.

Learned yet another new thing today.  A clementine (Citrus × clementina) is a hybrid between a mandarin orange and a sweet orange, so named in 1902. The exterior is a deep orange color with a smooth, glossy appearance. Clementines can be separated into 7 to 14 segments. Similar to tangerines, they tend to be easy to peel. They are typically juicy and sweet, with less acid than oranges.

We love tomatoes at our house.  We especially love them in salsa with our eggs in the morning.  I suspect not many shun these red appetizing beauties.

A frequent scene at harbors. The old boats and such just hanging around.
