Perfection...the fall we are being gifted with this year. Day after day of sunny, clear, cool days with crisp, chilly nights. I'm delighting in each one, wringing each moment dry. In a few days, I'll be under the knife, and then, for a bit of time, I won't be running up and down the hill to check on the garden or to play in the studio.
Thankfully my dear friend Jan who helped me get through recovery (via email) from the last surgery (as she was recovering from her own) has helped me once again by introducing me to Flickr.
Yes, I'd gone there to view Jan's art but hadn't really considered becoming involved or posting my art until she nudged a little.
If you think Facebook is a time passer (think black hole), try Flickr. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions (my guess) of pieces of art to look at and to leave comments on. Some
are mediocre, some excellent. There are friends and contacts to make and to email. With it being an international art community, I am now in contact with people from France, Germany, England and Nova Scotia as well as Portland...and that's in just two days!
Truly, what a gift right now. Even while I am spending those days in the hospital, I can use my laptop and distract myself from tubes and discomfort and enter into a never-ending, ever-changing world of art! Thanks, my dear friend.
P.S. My Flickr name is assemblageartist (can't believe no one had it). Jan's is akaLunaMoonbeam
