It's winter already. Pleased with myself for spending less time at the computer and more on art work. But then there's an idiotic kind of guilt. Guilty for neglecting........what? My facebook audience? Sitting in their seats, waiting for the show to start? My ongoing onewoman show. Idiot guilt. I'll post something soon, don't go away.

Over the years, a multitude of years, I've accumulated hundreds, maybe thousands of notebooks, diaries, memos, sketchbooks into which I poured thoughts, ideas, projects, questions, answers, observations. Whenever I come across one or more of them it's like reconnecting with a long lost much to catch up with. I don't recognise some of the things I wrote, they seem to come from a part of my consciousness I'm not familiar with but intrigued by.

I'd love to find someone who could transcribe all this handwritten/drawn stuff into some digital format so that I could review it as a whole and decide whether to do something more with it. Do any of you know of such a person or service?

Tonight, looking for something else, I found this ballpoint sketch in an old notebook, based on a famous masterpiece obviously, but I can't remember which one - any ideas?

Democrat gains to be thankful for in the US elections but the world news in general seem to be moving at the speed of darkness rather than light. What to do except to keep on keeping on?

Here's a new work in progress, still a lot to do on it. Am focusing on light, colour and unfamiliar space. So far untitled.

NdA. Work in progress, untitled. Nov.2018  Acrylic on rag paper.
