On August 21st, I traveled, from Staten Island into Manhattan, to try to see the Eclipse from the High Line, because I thought that might be an interesting place to see it from. I walked the High Line from 23rd Street to 14th Street. Many other people had the same idea as me. These are a few of the photos I got. The Eclipse wasn’t too great from NYC. It looks like the moon in the sky, but actually, it is the sun being covered by the moon.
This kind of art is about all I’m doing right now. I have lots of paintings I need to finish, but keep putting them off. Terrible. Everything I paint, I keep seeing things I want to add to it or do differently. I have lots of ideas for paintings, but I no longer get ideas for writing anything longer than a Tweet.
I hope to progress beyond these decorative kinds of paintings which can be classified as zentangles and/or optical art. They are so easy to do while watching TV. I love the English mysteries they have on PBS, like Grantchester, my very favorite right now. I’m 74 now and am starting to physically slow down. I figure that I can learn from doing these kinds of paintings and move on. I grow very fast.
A few things I have done to contribute to the world of the Decorative Arts. Things like these help brighten up a room. Markers on 12″ x 12″ canvas. In this “Age of Trump,” a person needs an outlet to get their mind off of politics, at least for a few minutes.
