Last weekend of July, 2020

I spent an hour and a half in the pool yesterday. Swam laps for a while, then a friend of mine came and I kept swimming and chatting with her. It’s been very hot and I’m grateful to have a place to be in the water.

Tried to do something different with unpainted rocks. I may have to mess with these more. I swooshed the paint to make a design, kind of fun.

I still like painting them matte black first. I’ll spray the finish on but it’s too hot to do it outside. I’ve been keeping a few in my drawer at work to give to people (if they’re not afraid to take them. I am not shedding the virus as far as I know).

Random picture of the poet who wrote “Paterson”, my home town. I’m going to attempt to do a drawing.

Have a good week! Nina

    The happy mermaid, that is you! I love seeing her and I look forward to seeing your poet portrait.

    I love the mermaid. And I like those abstract stones too. They look very primal. K.

      My friend brought me more stones from Montauk. I have so many and I love them, also liking painting on black paper. Hope you are doing ok in this heat. And thank you for the beautiful postcard, it’s sitting on my window ledge with the other one! N.

    Being a mermaid in a pool would be lovely right about now! More gorgeous rocks, Nina. I just love them. 🙂

      Yes…I couldn’t seem to get out of the water the other day. Now on two back to back eight hour shifts but I’m off tomorrow and plan to submerge myself once again. And the rocks, I think, are kind of an obsession. Take care! N.

    ….they all beg for each person’s interpretation–some of them remind me of Ukrainian Easter eggs; some of them remind me of the traditional woodland Indian floral designs which were brightly beaded onto black velvet clothing.

      Funny, I realized the other day they reminded me of those Ukrainian eggs-pashynki or something like that? I always liked those. And now I keep making these rocks. I keep some in my drawer at work to give out. Thanks! N.

        ….you’re certainly on a roll–someone recently left a rainbow rock at the bottom of our front garden (I said to Raul, ‘omg–we’ve been outed!’), and then another person came by and placed her own abstract and lovely rock next to it. It means a great deal to the receiver, and I know now how those receivers yours must feel.
