Writings & Musings by Debbra; Theme is Life & Art

Late June

Again, I haven’t written for a while.  Last time, I wrote about the two big issues in the world, COVID-19 and protests against racism.  Protests have still been ongoing and the good news is that systemic racism has being identified in many important circles.  This may make a big difference in mindsets and hopes are that changes for the better will come. 

With COVID-19, well, that is also still ongoing, as we all know.  That being said, I’m sure looking forward to returning to a semblance of normal, again.  Whatever and whenever that will be.   I don’t think though that this will be for a while or happen anytime soon.  Perhaps when we get a vaccine, things will return to something like the way we were.

With art, I’m seeing many lovely, interesting and statement works of art being produced, lately.   These are so inspiring to see, even if I only see it now on my digital devices.  For myself, I have had some other things to attend to, but getting back to my visual artwork is foremost in my mind.  Also, what I’ve been up to is a lot of paperwork and lots of writing.  That’s okay, I like writing, too.

Anyway, my mind has begun to shift back to fine art creating, colors and compositions, again.  For now, with the weather getting much better, I’m planning some plein air painting soon.  In addition, I want to put a piece together for a parting gift to a healer that I know.   This I will keep under my hat for now, until I do some more artistic research.   However, plans are in the works for that and to start another waterscape. 

I’ll sign off now.  Stay safe.  Keep creative. 

Thanks to all the front-line workers!

Well, it's almost mid-June and I haven’t written for a while, as I wasn’t sure where to start.  Much has happened in the world of late.  So, I’ve been keeping tuned to the news.  There are two big societal issues occurring at the same time, COVID-19 measures and protests against racism.  With COVID-19, things are starting to ease up here and society is starting to reopen slowly. 

With the stand against racism, I agree that some systemic shifts in society need to change.  I totally get what peaceful protestors have been doing and why they are getting out there.  However, my hopes are that the disease won’t spread like wildfire, as a result.   I do, though, sincerely wish that transformations will happen for the better.   That from now on changes will occur so that all peoples can be treated equally and with humanity.  

Furthermore, I think about the wonderful things that are being done globally, because of these issues.  Front-line workers are doing so much for all of us for COVID-19.   In addition, I see beautiful pieces of artwork being produced, along with those beautiful people who are making a stand for racial injustice.  My perspective of things right now in the face of fear and tragedy is that there are really great people doing really great things! 


Stay safe.  Keep creative.
