The man who taught Robert Johnson to play the blues

One heck of a biography if you want to read up on him.

Just finished my second palette knife painting. I'm really liking using a knife to paint.

Used a brush for the little barn and fence though.

12x12 oil on canvas “Missoula”

Did my first palette knife painting today.

Struggling with trying to lay down paint smoothly, I need lots more practice. Following instruction from Paul Apps on Patreon.

My latest attempt at remaining sane during these times.

For no discernible reason I am now making dollhouse sized paintings using an altoid tin pochade.

I was thinking, since Valentine's Day is near, someone might find this useful.

A homemade valentine seems like a wonderful gift to give someone!

When you have a cat in your life,

You have to learn to read cat body language and adapt yourself to them and what they need and want.

You have the exquisite privilege of having a small version of a lion or tiger in your life, so the small sacrifices you make to keep them healthy and happy should not be burdensome to you.

I hate seeing cats distressed in any way or teased. My kitty Bobo is the best friend I have and I have no doubt he would give his life for me if need be. I do my best to make his life a happy and pleasant one, with special heated beds, special food, pets and lap time any time he wishes, play time, etc. I even play him “music cats love” every morning during our snuggle time. He purrs when the music begins, so I really do think he likes the music.

Kitties are one of the best things life offers, if you ask me.
