    A cozy 30 overnight, back up around 50 later. Darn, we've had three sunny days in a row!

    Hola .. :)

    Yeah, well, I still think you should have framed a couple of the most special to you .. :)

    My way at looking at things like this is likely different than many .. sure, I can pull up a Playlist as well as anyone .. for me, however, the old vinyl (and a few other objects), impart a certain Mojo that was absorbed over the long years .. it's almost like when a person or relative you know passes, and you inherit somehow something they owned .. or an old guitar that I've had forever ..

    "In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand at the mongrel dogs who teach
    Fearing not that I’d become my enemy in the instant that I preach
    My pathway led by confusion boats, mutiny from stern to bow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now .."

    What did Dylan mean .. ?? He meant that the anger and protest of his youth made him no different than what he targeted .. and, that he is now ready to repent for what he saw as his past wrongs .. this is as timely today as it was back then ..

    Stop making me double think my decision. I'm haunted enough with that problem throughout my life. That and the 'what if' deamon. What if I did that, what if I didn't do that. aarrgghh!!!!

    I was once told that it's easy to make a decision ... just tougher to accept it. o_O

    'Afternoon everyone...:)

    The first week's word prompt was...Celebration...and the reference pic was silhouettes of several small boats on water at night with fireworks in the sky. The first thing that came to my mind and stayed was my granddaughter's engagement that came in between Christmas, her birthday and New Years. So...with her permission I took the pic she sent me, changed the orientation and background, and painted this...

    [​IMG]

    Out of the , so far, 7 prompts and photo references, there's only one that I'm using the reference pic for... Another reason that I'm slow, searching for what pops into my mind with a prompt...;)

    Good chilly morning Kay and Anise. The sun is shining and we're headed into a warming trend for the next couple days. Sunday should be a lovely day for Beckett's 3rd birthday party.


    Wow Yiddle. You painted hands! Hands are HARD! And did a great job of it too! Your interpretation of the prompt definitely says Celebration!! I am envious of your talent!

    'Morning everyone...:)

    Something I learned to do when I was sculpting, was to take a series of photos to document the stages a piece went through from beginning to completion for copyright protection... I have boxes of them.

    Here is just one from this painting...;)

    I feel sorry for you both. That "What If" monster can keep you from enjoying life and can mire you in tons of the quicksand of the past. The past has already given you gifts, take those lessons and gather more and accept what gifts come next.

    Incredibly life-like. Of course, I'm just a layperson, but IMO, you've been blessed with a talent that rivals the best of them!

    Duh, sorry. The blue picture showed up when I hit send on my post and thought the thread messed up and imposed the blue version instead of the original (if that makes sense). I didn't realize it was a separate post.

    Back to rain here, but moderate temps. Cloud cover can do that :)
