GOOD ADVICE

“I tried being reasonable.  I didn’t like it.”  Clint Eastwood

I recently received a comment from a reader who was trying to help.  The reader said that they’d read a number of my posts and observed that I was repetitious and that was why my Google rating was low.  But help could be on the way.

Obviously, the reader didn’t read the post where I said I was blogging because I liked the challenge of a daily post and because I like to write.  In other words, I write because I have no tail to wag.  That’s also the reason I paint.

Right now I’m experimenting with intuitive painting.  I think that means painting by what feels like the next right thing to do rather than painting with a plan.

I used to paint very structured pieces.  I needed a change.

Paintings of yesteryear

Am I concerned about my Google rating?  Absolutely not.  Still, I’d like to thank the person who was simply trying to help.  I guess there are socially constructed norms for a successful life that I’m ignoring.  I might try to get in touch with them after I finish my next painting.  Maybe.
