Art is expression,
and to have high expression
you must have something high to express.

It’ll be interesting to see how many motorcycles converge at Port Dover Today as COVID-19 restricitons have been easing and we are now in the Step 3 of the Ontario Re-opening plan.

Today’s quote and picture are a repeat of 2019, before we were all locked down. The lily pad looks like a painters pallet.

Painting is one thing I never thought I’d be doing, but during lockdown it is something I decided to try. On-line tutorials have made painting easy and interesting. Yesterday my grandson and I tried Jesse Roberson’s Miami Breeze. You can try these yourself at : https://jesserobertson.com/virtualtutorials/

  1. As I read the quote, I thought about how I have been wanting a painting of white birch bark trees. I wanted to express how I love these trees which are found in Michigan, and the farther north one goes, the more white birch bark trees there are. I didn’t want to pay a lot as I’ve seen paintings of these trees in art shops. Your post gave me the idea to paint one myself. And being the cheapie that I am, I searched Youtube and found lots of free videos on how to do this. Thanks for the idea!
