New Year's resolutions: Instagram

I've had an Instagram account for several years, set up mainly so I could see photos of the new grandchild.  That was before I owned a smartphone, so I was not able to post anything (you can read but not write to Instagram from a computer).  And even after I succumbed to the 21st century and upgraded my phone, I never made a post.  

first day's post: Janus (front and back)

I can't exactly say why I resisted, but on the afternoon of New Year's Day I decided that this year I would not only make Instagram posts, but do it every day.  It's not "daily art" in the sense that I usually practice it, because I'm not making anything or following rules.  But it is going to be "daily."  

second day's post: from a recent walk

I realize that I have made an awful lot of art in my lifetime, and much of it I'm even proud to show in public.  So I'm going to go through my bazillion photos and find something different to show you every day.  Some will be art or photos from the past; some might be new work or even work in progress. 

If you do Instagram, I invite you to take a look, at   <  kathy_in_ky  >.  Maybe it will even cheer you up through the dark days of winter pandemic. 

third day's post: imaginary maps
