It's all fixed ... thanks to a special friend who knows everything. ! 
I really must get all my Picasa photos onto a cd or flash whatever.
Some of my photos are the only record I have of my paintings.
 Everyone should remember if you delete anything in Picasa it will get deleted in your blog ... any changes you make .... well same thing.  It's a happy day ... again. 


  1. I have learned the hard way about Picasa :) I am glad it is all working again, BJ! This is beautiful, and so is the previous one.

  2. Congratulations!
    Fixes can feel better than a Christmas morning.
    Flash drives, two, and disks, two are a good way to keep back up copies, and, a separate disk for painting only. I add text to a photo of paintings with dates and such.

  3. Such lovely flowers. And ta for info re Picasa.

  4. Good to hear you have your photos safe and sound. My old Mac started to die on me and i was worried i would lose my images. An external hard drive and a new Mac book air took care of the sleepless nights. Your painting is lovely by the way! Hope you are well there Barbra. Happy painting!

  5. Glad you fixed the problem, BJ! And got all your pics too!

  6. Well thanks everyone, I was in panic mode for a few hours.
    I intend to get something as an external drive to put my painting photos onto.
    It's always been a worry and after this I realize it can happen.

  7. Dear BJ - just catching up on your posts...so glad you had a friend and was able to recover your photos. Also love the gorgeous Iris - mine are blooming right now. May be I will find some time to paint one or two as well. Hope you have a delightful week. Hugs!
