Google Definition of Dud: “Noun – A thing that fails to work properly or is otherwise unsatisfactory or worthless.”
Ecuador – The claro USB modem internet system is a dud! It receives no signal at my friends’ property, and in “Mindo Proper” it receives a signal, opens pages slowly, but will not send an email! Sigh, Paradise DOES have its frustrations!
Paradise also provides a bounty of beauty and enough material to keep me happily painting for – EVER! Here are some images that illustrate perfect consolation prizes for lack of internet!
Although I prefer to work from life when drawing or painting, my reference photos provide great details and trigger memories of beautiful moments!
This moth (above) guarded the kitchen doorway for an entire evening and flew away the following morning!
The images provide a tickle of a preview for this week’s Timeout for Art, which will hopefully soar out of the gate later tonight.
Thanks, everyone, for your amazing support! Time to return to the Garden of Eden! Z
