Covid Status & Dust In The Past

 May 23, 2021

   Eighth day in lockdown isolation. One positive thing about the current situation is that there has been plenty of time to draw and paint.

Daily Whip Out: "Dust In The Past"

   Actually, the title started out to be "Dust In The Pass" as in, "We Saw The Dust And Our Guide, Mickey Free, Estimated Whoever It Was They Were Riding at Least 200 Strong." But "Dust In The Past" has a nostalgic, evocative feel and that is the mood I'm in at the moment.

   I also found time to catch up on a certain punk cowgirl.

Covid Update #3

  Everyone asks me if I lost my sense of smell or taste with Covid. Not really, but for some strange reason I have lost all interest in watching sports. Just dead to me. Kind of weird, but there you have it.

   As to the taste part of it, Juni Fisher weighed in with this: "Let's see today's outfit so we can judge on the loss of taste or not."

   The old turn around at the art desk and turn the phone camera on flip and document the outfit and the lack of a shave, a persistent pandemic problem. Full disclosure: I just finished a staff Zoom meeting and had on the hat and custom shirt (courtesy of Randy Lee O'Neal and his Riyadh tailer, Akram Khan).

   It's often hard to be inspired in these ridiculous times, but sometimes a voice from that past can not only be uplifting, but inspiring to boot.
