Fly Paper and Phone Photos

I’m busy, but taking a bit of time to relax. I’ve read a few blogs, but I’m still operating at a reduced blog-viewing capacity. To all those whose blogs I’ve missed . . . I hope you have other readers looking at your stuff. 

For the past three nights, I’ve indulged in a bit of sketching . . . I used to call it doodling, but this seems a bit more than drawing abstract but somehow regular (and geometric) patterns. 

I try to infuse a little humor into my efforts. I figure it might be just distracting enough to keep people from being overly-critical of my drawing skills. 

Actually, no one has commented on either of my previous drawings . . . and from that, I take it readers are just too in awe to conjure up worthy superlatives for my efforts. (Edited to Add: one person has, in fact, commented on the drawings and in a complimentary way, and the comments were appreciated.) 

That’s a long way of saying . . . here’s my latest:

I call that “The Wall” and here’s a framed version of it.

Yes, I’m still playing around with the frame option in Topaz Studio.

OK, I’m kind of tired and I need to hit the sack, so I’ll just present a gallery of a few more framed photos. These are all photos that were shot with the Samsung Note 8 and processed in Topaz Studio.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.
