Quick & Quixotic 4

Ground cover is holding steady, but I've traveled the byways away from town. Telephone poles become a fading mental image as I approach open skyscape.



The limitless great beyond lightens as day advances.

  1. Looks much calmer so hope that reflects a calmer time for you! Looks like underground is above ground!

    1. Thanks, Carol. In fact, while the pace here hasn't slowed per se, there are fewer separate enterprises in the mix right now so I feel less scattered and split, i.e. calmer!

    1. Happy to know you're willing to skip in this-direction-then-that-next-here-after-that-there with me, Laurie!

      Where DID those telephone poles go! I'm guessing they'll return when we least expect them! : )

  4. have to say, each time I open your blog ans see the tree topper, I am happy :) Love the clamer sky, and following this, so make me feel like I am on a road trip. So fun to ease back in my seat, and enjoy the journey. Hope you are enjoying it more now too Dotty. :)

    1. I like the road trip image, Sheila; I'm enjoying the journey, too, especially since I have friends like you cranking up the music and keeping me company.

      Yes, my recent hyper-busyness has eased a bit. Further, I've regained my center even with ongoing competing demands. I'm still not back to what I'd consider a 'usual' studio routine but, one way or another, I find a way every day to indulge in creative activity. Yay!

  5. Love where you are going with this piece! Look how amazing the sky looks with the second layer of blue. Love your 'fearlessness' when you paint - need to take a page out of your book! So....where to next?!

    1. Thanks for your feedback, Janet. I appreciate your observations and questions. The second layer of blue in the sky pleased me too. I envision more layers.

      I am grateful to have become more fearless over time. I've certainly come a long way since my first experiences three years ago.

      Where to next? Won't know till I return to this painting. Working on it has been a funny experience, with its development thus far having taken place in very short little bursts, sometimes with days in between. I have one more post upcoming (the actual painting for which took place at least a week ago), and we're about to head off on a vacation, so I won't be continuing with Q&Q for quite some time!
