Beginning 17 weeks at Home...Oh My!

I have to admit that the 4th of July was emotionally rough being by ourselves

32 years of 4th of July celebrations and we skipped it this year! 

Watched 13th on Netflix was eye opening about private prisons and injustice

I started a new painting project using 10” wood squares and acrylic paint

My sinus issues are taking a toll on me. I need to go see an ENT 

 View from my coffee cup to one of our raised beds go see how everything is growing

My brother unearthed a cassette tape from 1972 of our family talking and it was the highlight of my day to hear my grandmother’s voice

I go to my studio at least 3 days a week for a change of pace

Spent the day in my studio reading and painting

One of my abstract paintings

This is a metal heart that I am painting of a cup and saucer

Started a new book series while I wait for Elly Griffiths new book in the Ruth Galloway series to come out. I’ve read over 45 books since January

This is a chat book. It’s an app on my iPad. 8x8 size. I also like their 6x6” books. This documents the super bloom in my main garden. All of the pics from my iPad and from IG. I use chat books to document trips, our family, my artwork, etc. If you want to print one for yourself of your photos, use this CHAT BOOKS CODE JAMIEFINGAL-LAN7 for a discount!
