CHALK ART: "Postcard #16"

It's been 10 months since my last "Postcard to the Neighborhood". Yesterday, I finally broke through the creative malaise caused by Covid, rains (which will erase chalk art), excessive heat warnings, health issues, boredom and a general mindset of "I don't feel like being creative today." I'm hoping I've turned a corner, and will get a little "zip" back for a season. I've included a couple of pics from inside my garage where I drew the "Hydrate" chalk-art as I listened to the "Average White Band" and the "Greatest hits of James Brown".

It's time for a new "postcard"...#15 in the series. Fortunately, I've found that most people I've encountered this crazy year have tried to remain humane to each's worth the effort, folks.

CHALK ART: "Postcard 14"

After nearly 2 months, I finally worked up another "Postcard to the Neighborhood" (#14). While drawing on it, I had three unexpected inquiries as to my health from folks on their walks. Nice to have neighbors that care if I keel over!! Truth is...I had hit a "Creative Covid Slump" for at least the last month. I just didn't have any ideas or energy to make stuff...highly unlike me!!!

So...I picked a topic that is like my "nemesis" each year...I love the colors of the leaves...but hate raking them. Now that I have my Snapper Riding Mower...we'll see if my attitude changes. Have a Happy First Day of Autumn tomorrow!!!
