Flip Flop

26 (12 x 12 x 2 inch) stones plus 50 (8 x 16 x 2 inch) bricks and 2 50-pound bags of sand Whew!







Not the flip-flop shoe, but a description of my change from planned activities. For those who have been reading my posts regularly, you know that I am on a course one day and then abruptly change course the next or sooner.

Similar to a Pablo Picasso quote, "I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else." And that also explains many of my art works. Sometimes I think "art" has the idea and I am just the servant pushing the tools.

So back to where my Watercolor Challenge paintings went...well they are still sitting on my lightbox suspended in time. I will get back to those soon because they are calling me and I like how they look.

The time was ripe for me to lay a brick patio in my yard. I have been wanting to do this for three years, but two consecutive surgeries on one foot delayed that endeavor. With cool weather this week the patio is about 30% complete! 

Today the heat has returned so the patio will wait and watercolor painting will begin again.

Working in the yard, laying brick patios, and moving furniture around are art-forms for me, unlike mopping, vacuuming, and washing the car. I am 71 years old this month and I claim the right to embrace my options.

Gotta be flexible. See you soon.
