Whatnot, Whatever, What Now

Whatnot seems to be the new etc., I suppose. Well in the last decade or so. My husband happened to have the dictionary out just now where we were looking up pedantic. I mentioned my title here and he looked up whatnot. It is defined as "an indescribable thing." (derived from the whatnot shelf) However, my son, who has always been very creative with his word construction, (I'm always saying, "Jimmy, that is not a word.") started using the phrase and whatnot often as a list-ender.

Having solved that weighty matter, let's move on to whatever. A good friend, whom I spend a lot of time with on the weekends at the lake, truncates many, if not most, of her sentences with whatever. She gives a it very definitve downward inflection; end of discussion. It's rather contagious for some reason and I find myself imitating her, whatever.

So what now. I just stared out the window for about 20 seconds. Oh yeah, the yellow roses painting of the last post sold this weekend. And someone else is interested in a similar painting, only larger. That's a good thing, isn't it? For the nonce,

Here is Fishermen's Dock, prints available, original sold. I imagine those fellows on the Chesapeake are hauling up the oysters as we speak.

Hi Linda,

Wonderful blog you have here. I enjoyed viewing your watercolors, especially this one.

I love the serene feel of this painting and the choice of colors...

The painting's really beautiful. For some reason it kinda reminds me of grandma's place near the river :)

Hi Linda - Thanks for your feedback. I'm just a simple paintbrush Linda. The Holy Spirit is the one who comes up with ideas, etc. It's kind of fun to see what is going to be created each time.

By the way, this painting is gorgeous! Are you off your boat now?
Take care
My gallery site is - I go into more detail about how the creation process works - bye

Oh my your work is incredible!! I know because I studied art.

When I do paint, or I should say when I used to paint I worked i forgiving the pallet filled with oil.

I never mastered water color. It is a very difficult medium.

And you are a master of it.

Now my passion is photography. I just got hooked a few weeks ago so I am still a novice.

Wow I really enjoyed dropping by here.

Simply stunning!:-)
