Jo M. Orise - Art Update


My art signature. Changed it for clarity.
Okay. I have been painting - all year long between other obligations.
The number of finished pieces eludes me at the moment. Water colors and oils. Ah, and lots of gestures sketches of people, places. Perhaps I'll place those in my virtual gallery someday.

Subject: marine art.

My signature was not working well for me. The upper-case J with an exaggerated, extended top next to the o and middle initial had a strange effect of being read as "Tom."

Viewers ignored the space between the o and the M. They also ignored the period after M. Therefore, "Morise" evolved in the conversation.

So, I modified the J into an exaggerated lower case j where I have since decided to dot it as well. That will make the reader pay attention a little bit more.
Modified further. I like this effect.

While away for the winter, I produced four 12 X 16"oil paintings!
I just special ordered floater-frames (love those fames 💕 ). The outside edges of the paintings are visible and the painting travels around the edges for you to see.

Keep visiting my virtual gallery http://www.jomorise.com to see my newest pieces. I will put them up soon!

What else am I doing?

I am in the throes of tax work.

Hubby peeked around the door to my desk, "Please look through these, Hon. Check for errors. I get tired and bored."

Oh. Really?

I revved up Turbo-Tax, and with my wonderful see-thru ruler, I follow the lines of data and numbers and check off boxes and type in descriptions and delete errors and on and on... .

Don't you just love doing this busy work? Uncle Sam wants to know what we have been doing all year.

Dear Uncle Sam,
Regarding your concern about our finances, let me impressed upon you that I have been literally working my butt off. 😩 Does that count? What form shall I use?
Please answer ASAP as I too am getting tired of this task.

Regards,
Your loyal tax paying citizen.
