As I look back over this tumultuous, largely negative year, the pandemics have helped rescue this blog, though I didn't realize it until recently.
|"Te Ata portrait," back in January|
My posts and paintings helped the blog set a record. More on that tomorrow. But I also found that the more I painted, it spurred me also to write about the art, leading me to more reading, and more metaphor and thought. I painted more than ever, spurring my learning, as I put together slide shows of the work.
So here are some of my favorite paintings and articles, month by month. Scroll through them for a look back in time.
January--My first portrait: Te Ata
March-- The virus
October-- Back roads poetry
