Pas de d'Eau by phantsythat Pas de d'Eau by phantsythat
Some words of wisdom from H.L. Mencken:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace in a continual state of alarm (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing them with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

yes I love this - I love your framing patterns.
Also you have captured such a knowing expression, and kind of enigmatic I think -  on the woman

Thanks so much. There are times when I want to get the body of the
painting done just so I can get on with the border :)

I'm delighted you like her. A being mostly water dancing
with water seemed appropriate.

Hey Susan - I hope you are painting away this weekend.  We have Spring rain, which is not unusual.  I did some painting last night and now I am catching up on Social Media.

Hi Stephen - Yes, painting and going for long walks through the
parks and along the shore while the autumn weather remains
gentle. Later it will be walks in the snow and ice - definitely
of shorter duration :)

dA is my only social media other than blog - thank goodness.
