Keeping busy

Hi Everyone!

I hope all of you are well and staying home. Mr. M. and I have been in for a month, only going out twice for food. We have made a rule that we do not speak of Covid but only once a day. We only watch the news once a day too. We are making our lives as stress free as possible during this time. We both are finding things to keep us busy like art, games, walks in our back yard, and keeping in touch with family and friends. Also since there is no yeast in my town I made a bread starter.  What are you doing to keep busy?
I was in my art room painting when I changed canvases and just started putting paint on. No plan, no rhyme or reason. It is overcast and stormy here so I tried to take the photo on my back porch for some sort of light.  The colors seem to be true. 
I will probably work on this but for now here is what I have. 

Be safe, stay at home.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. When you told me that, I wasn't sure I understood at first but, now that I'm reading your blog... It does make sense. And I think it's a smart decision, Nicole. To not give this virus too much attention, because it doesn't deserve it. And needs to go away. ASAP.

    To answer your question, think everyone's mainly both busy and bored at the same time. It's not easy but, everyone knows that. The painting you shared with us is... Quite interesting. And it will be even more interesting to see how it will look later.

    Elbow hugs, girl! ;)

  2. Now this is my way of painting also! No plan, no inspiration photo, just moving paint around in a way that you enjoy. I love the colors of the edges (background? ) and I see something discernible in the rest very easily. I will keep it to myself for now and wait to see if I still see it when it’s finished. This is so much fun!

  3. My main daily activity seems to be reading people's blogs, LOL! And surfing the net.

  4. Sounds like a great plan. Love your painting.

  5. I am SO late visiting. Seems when I just get caught up, I get knocked off the internet again. I like this already. I'm enjoying your abstracts.

    I'm not sure if it's because of my poor internet and being behind at everything, or if I just have no motivation. I'm not doing much of anything during this lock down, except watching old tv shows. Stay safe.

  6. Creating art, gardening, and reading blogs! The only way to live! LOL! Big Hugs!
