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

Holidays and Celebrations:
- Friday the 13th Port Dover Biker Rally
- International Left-Handers Day
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/

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!

Glad you are going to try painting as well. White birch are so beautiful. It’s amazing how many tutorials are free on the internet. Such a perfect activity on one of those lazy rainy days.
