Lizz’s Bizz: How to handle a drought my way.

                       IMG_8157
At the moment we are in a severe drought situation in South Africa.  One sees doom and gloom and food and veg prices increasing astronomically.  It is quite hard to not get into the rut of complaining about it all, when there is little one can do to change it.

SO:  I have decided to paint a series of pictures depicting water and hopefully these paintings will bring some comfort and peace to those viewing them. 

This Diptych of a forest pool is available singly or together.
"Forest Pool 1&2"   acrylic,  30x40cm each R650 each or R1250 for the pair.#3895 and #3896.  

How would you cope with this situation?

Lizz’s Bizz. Murphy and all that

Once again Mr Murphy has had the last word. I was just getting my website sorted out and finding out how to copy and paste things all over the place when my renewal for my hosting became necessary.
With our horrendous exchange rate of R16+ to the dollar, it was just too pricey to continue with an American host for my site.

Fortunately, one can transfer your hosting and I did so, to a South African site which was much cheaper. BUT…and this is where Murphy stepped in again. The back up which my computer lady did for my site, disappeared into the ether. It had never happened to her before.

Well, now about 10 days later, I am a little sadder and wiser. I am learning all over again how to download, label and allocate my photos. I need to get my paintings ‘out there’, but it is becoming a huge task.

Still don’t know what Widgets are and how to use them. Do I need this at 76? Yes, I am heading for 104 so I guess I have time to learn. I so admire people like Georgie Moon who just publish daily and find all sort of interesting people and blogs to follow.

I think I will stick to painting. It’s what I do,and as I only started at 60, I have a lot to catch up on. This is close to where I live. Would you not also want to paint it?
