Before the Rain

There is 100% chance of rain for the next two days so I got out for some photos while I had the chance. It would be nice to be able to stop here and have a drink. It will be at least sometime in February before that happens. I guess we could all get together for drinks if we wore these. Saw these in a florist just starting to bloom. Cute mosaic dragon on rue du Dragon. It’s not by the famous mosaic artist whose pieces that I’ve been searching for. I see quite a f...

The Best Thing

It’s really hard to beat the street markets in Paris. I just happened upon this one on the way to some place else. It made me wish I had my cart so I could have taken some of the bounty home. It’s citrus season as you can see. Nice fresh flowers for sale. Turnips I think. This squash makes such good soup. Nuts and dried fruit for sale. I love mushrooms. These people must sell a lot of chickens. Look at all of those being cooked. Here he is pu...

All Saints Day

Usually on All Saints Day, November 1st, I go the Pere Lachaise Cemetery which is an especially lovely place but even more so on November 1st because many people come to visit those who have passed on and to bring flowers, usually mums. Due to the Confinement I missed it this year but on November 9th I made a quick trip up to Montmartre and while there, visited the small local Saint Vincent Cemetery. The leaves were turning. The ivy on the walls looked pretty. I’ve always like...

That's a painting by Georgia O'Keeffe. The title is "Coxcomb," and because I like Georgia O'Keeffe, I feel as though I've prevailed in my debate with Meade about whether the name of the flower is spelled "coxcomb" or "cockscomb."The subject came up in connection with a visual joke I presented in the previous post, which is about a brain wrapped in tinfoil that was found on a beach in Racine, Wisconsin. Along with the brain — which was not a human brain, so don't engage the empathy regions of you...

Finding Joy in the Midst of Uncertainty

It might seem frivolous to write a blog post about making art right now, in a world full of uncertainty and fear. I’ve wanted to say just the right things that might be uplifting or helpful, instead of just making happy talk. But it’s not frivolous at all. We need beauty now more than ever. We need the meditative healing that creativity can provide. Drawing, painting, singing, dancing, baking bread, digging in the dirt — all are things that can save us from despair at the sadness all around us. ...
