Miss Peach

Did any of you ever read the Miss Peach comic strip? Do you remember Arthur? Arthur's weed patch?

To my surprise, I could find no link to Arthur's weed patch online.

No matter.

I think I wandered into Arthur's weed patch this afternoon. Either there or into a neighborhood vacant lot with a few scraggly weeds and some litter … which is to say, into the littered vacant lot of my mind.

Great place to play! I added discarded items from other sources into the lot and fiddled around with arrangements and rearrangements. Will return tomorrow.

  1. Always fun playing in a old lot. Who knows what you may discover. Love that orange!
    I downloaded safari for windows, but my problem still remains.. your blog shows the images in lightbox, mine doesn't :(

    1. For sure I'm having fun playing in this old lot! I painted this start a few days ago—I think the orange was a mix of quin gold and transparent yellow iron oxide high flow acrylic.

      Bummer that you have befuddling lightbox issues. Have you tried googling about the problem? I don't even know what lightbox is!

    2. Open your post in the broser and click on your images and you will see that they open on a black bacground with little thumbs under the image. On the black background top right an X brings yiu back to the blog. Its great when you have a number of images!

    3. Thanks for following up on this, Carol. I've used that function at my own blog and on the web in countless other places; just never knew it was called lighbox! I see the black background and the x top right, though do not see and never have seen little thumbs under any image. Is the advantage, when there's a number of images, that they don't have to be opened up one by one with a back-and-forth to the blog, but are all lined up in one venue for viewing easily by scrolling quickly from one to the next?

    4. Maybe your browser isn't open full screen. so you have to scroll. I saw clearly the thumbs. Will send you a screenshot.

    5. Nope, screen is fully open, can't scroll anywhere else, no thumbs! In the end, a humble reminder that what we send out into the world may not look—on the screens of others—anything like what we think we're sending!

  2. Oh yeah, love that golden warmth. Looks like you were kicking at bottle caps and twigs. :)
