Hang On

There’s been so much going on this past week that I’ve really had no time (or energy) left to catch up with blogging. Street art festival in town; more belated birthday celebrations, including a major technical home makeover this weekend (new TV and audio system and on top of that a new printer/scanner); and in the midst of it all (on Thursday) a friend’s funeral. (Add to that the chaos in the World that unavoidably comes streaming over us with every newscast; and sorting out one’s own thoughts and feelings about Everything gets even harder.)

For now, I’ll just post this, following up on a promise made in my previous post: The finished street painting that I got to watch David Zinn sketch last Wednesday – and the fountain nearby that inspired it.

I suppose it’s possible that the challenge of painting street art in very moody and rainy weather may have had something to do with it as well, though –

“just clench your teeth and get on with it”, perhaps?? Winking smile

    1. Vielen Dank, Meike! :-)
      I don't think my birthday is even on my profile, and I don't think I've mentioned it coming up, so you're totally excused! (It was my 60th, last Saturday - with celebrations spread out a bit.)
