My "list: included doing some work in the garden. Today was another hot and muggy day on the east coast. Despite this miserable weather, I managed to get some gardening done. I, also tried working on my painting outside, but was forced to move back indoors, when the bugs discovered me and decided that I made a tasty meal.
I am working on a few paintings, which are in various stages of completion. Today's goal was to make some progress on the purple flower painting and do a daily painting. Well, I did make some decent progress on the flower. My daily painting once again, is on the list of things that I did not have a chance to complete. Tomorrow is another day, the daily painting moves to the top of the list.

These days, it can be difficult to tell online whether you are getting truly original art or a copy put out by a machine. Some copies are printed on canvas and a dishonest seller could convince you that you are buying an original. It’s a good idea to be careful when buying art, whether online or in a physical gallery. Of course, reproductions are fine, as long as you know you’re getting a reproduction from an honest seller. I say “honest,” because some sellers will illegally make reproductions of another artist’s work, then try to sell it to you. This is why many artists will not publish large images of their art on web pages. They are afraid of theft.I will post a close-up of one of pictures, later, when the sun has come up. I am sure that I am not the only one who finds it just a little bit difficult to take good pictures in the darkness of the night.
