Doing little mini paintings. They appeal to my need for instant gratification.

I don’t care about painting exact replicas of the subject – either content or colors. . . . If you saw the reference photos you’d say “Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?” The first reference was a picture of a slice of pumpkin pie and the second was a bucolic scene with the house in the distance. I prefer to call it “artistic license” rather than “novice efforts”.
Here’s the good news
Eat nuts for your health
Pecans, walnuts, cashews
macadamias, if you choose
Just remember please
Peanuts are not nuts
They’re legumes, just like peas
no ifs, ands or buts

The analysis of tree nut consumption included 826 patients. Previous studies showed positive associations between regular consumption of nuts reduction in cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance.*
The results showed that patients who consumed two or more 1-oz servings of nuts weekly had a 42% lower risk of cancer recurrence and a 57% lower risk of death from any cause during the follow-up period.
“The associations were limited to tree-nut intake and were not significant for consumption of peanuts or peanut butter,” said Fadelu. “The biologic mechanism is unknown but is likely related to the effect of nuts on insulin resistance.”

“People reflect each other constantly,
but when they dance, perhaps what they reflect most is that moment of honesty.”

Shake, rattle ‘n roll, Internationally by Peggy
“In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate dance, revel in the universality of this art form, cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a common language – dance.”
