A simple reminder. For all the negative aspects of the global pandemic, there isn't much the average individual can do other then avoiding others, wearing a mask and reducing contact with potential virus carriers. Meanwhile, when you aren't out and about worrying about catching the virus, take a moment to relax. At home you don't need to worry, be happy!

What does summer sound like? For me the ingrained sound of summer is "Turkey in the Straw" blaring from the loudspeakers of the Good Humor Ice Cream truck. As soon as we heard that old tune we'd be racing to break open the piggy banks or beg Mom for a quarter to buy a Strawberry Shortcake, Fudgicle or one of those cones with the gumball at the bottom.
Summer sounds like kids screaming as they dive into still freezing ocean water. The sound of lawnmowers in the late afternoon. Jet skis, motorboats, the sound of traffic backed up along the bridge to Cape Cod.

What does the perfect summer mean to you?
Hanging out by the pool, skinny dipping in the lake on a hot summer night, listening to the cricket and frogs through an open window, casting a lure to catch a catfish, cruising out on the lake in a Sunfish sailboat?
This black and white photograph of an old cheap lawn chair out by a body of water captures the essence of summer and would look great on the wall of a summer vacation home.
Available framed and matted, on canvas or as a metal print. Sizes from 8x10 to sofa sizes.

Pinterest is a visual scrapbook used by consumers to organize wishes, dreams and future purchases. Wedding planners, home redecorators, designers, planners, and of course shoppers use Pinterest to get ideas and organize future projects.
Pinterest is tailor-made for visual artists to showcase their portfolios of artwork. Photographers and artists can maintain and organize boards around themes that they offer such as National Park Photographs or even how-to articles to help inspiring photographers and artists gain knowledge.

Many fellow artists fail to understand how to use social media to promote their artwork. Marketing is simple really. It is about filling your target audience's needs.
Think about how you yourself use social media. Is your goal to look at ads screaming "buy me, buy me!"? Not likely.
More likely you use social media for news, entertainment, information, humor, how to do things, recipes etc.
So why do artists expect to gain a following on social media buy simple posting "buy me!" type ads?
Bring your audience in with looks behind the scenes, information about you the artist and about the artwork. Buyer's who understand the intent behind the work are more likely to engage and purchase.

The state of New York and New York City especially has been hit hard by the Corvid-19 pandemic. One of the world's greatest cities, NYC is often the target of crisis manmade and those from nature.
But New Yorkers are resilient and know how to fight back and recover from some of the worst attacks the world has known.
I dedicate this post to those strong New Yorkers fighting coronavirus either in the hospitals or simply by hunkering down and stopping the spread.

"Route 66 Vintage Postcard" by Edward Fielding is popular as prints as well as shower curtains.
Note: the watermark in the lower right does not appear in the final print.
U.S. Route 66 (US 66 or Route 66), also known as the Will Rogers Highway, the Main Street of America or the Mother Road, was one of the original highways within the U.S. Highway System. US 66 was established on November 11, 1926, with road signs erected the following year. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in the United States, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Santa Monica, California, covering a total of 2,448 miles (3,940 km). It was recognized in popular culture by both the hit song "(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66" and the Route 66 television show in the 1960s.
