The Last Post

Well, it's said "all good things must come to an end."

It seems my blog postings have come to an end as this will be my last posting.  Perhaps sometime down the road I will start up again but I doubt it as I've lost the desire to continue.  It's been fun and it's also been a headache at times.  The economy went into the toilet and the consumer interest in art work also went into the toilet.  Sure people love to look at art work - more often than not --- they just look.

 Everybody loves to look but rarely do they ever buy.  I really do not feel that the art market is ever going to come back.  People have gotten use to not buying art.  On the other hand the fast food market gets stronger and stronger and obesity flourishes and is now a way of life for Americans - go figure!

For those of you who have followed me on my art and RV journey I thank you for your support.

A blog is like giving a performance on stage to an empty house.  Ya GOTTA really want to do it.  The past couple of years it has turned into a chore so it's time for me to move on and spend my time in more productive areas.

Yo my friends,

Some times an artist goes into a "dark stage" caused by many different reasons. We have been having sort of a monsoon weather pattern for the past week or so here in SW Florida - downpours and winds most every afternoon - not lasting long but almost like clock work. We had a monsoon flow in AZ and NM as well but not as much rain as here in Florida.
"Monsoon Storm Approaches Oak Creek Sedona AZ"
6 x 12 done very quickly in a semi abstract style

Florida has a monsoon flow most all summer long with sometimes very high winds and rain at 1 inch per hour - as I say the storms do not last long so it's more of an inconvenience than anything else - however it sure is good for the ground and fire danger!!!  Hurricane season here starts June 1 and ends November 1 so these monsoon little storms are nothing compare to the havoc a hurricane can cause!!

Don't forget the check out my ETSY STORE and my paintings on Fine Art America - The ETSY STORE arrival of summer SALE will be ending very soon.
