Stopping in to say hello to all of you wonderful bloggers and followers. I have had no computer issues just trying to clean up the place from a nasty winter and a year of shoulder pain. A month ago was the surgery and yes I know I can not expect miracles but seems in some positions it is better and others there is horrid pain where there wasn’t any before surgery I still have two weeks to go before seeing the doctor to get my questions addressed so I continue with my Physical Therapy and keep trying to get back more use with less pain. Life is good though.
We have been doing some repairs here on the weather-beaten house and 4 more bags of concrete and a few more fires and the yard will be ready to enjoy. I shall share with you two shots of the yard from today May 1, also a photo of my watercolor I have been trying to get to my liking seems I never am DONE :( I swear I am NOT a perfectionist lol. When I showed my work I have been doing to my teacher Marina(3 classes now)she said “PUT THESE ON FABRIC!” so I did over in my Zazzle store. I added this one of trees onto an oblong pillow.
Then she gave me homework of sorts. A mission actually. She thought I should FOCUS lol who me :) and begin work on a Body of Art. 50 to 100 paintings of Trees in the Forest different colors but always add my Birch Trees. She loves them. I love making them so this will be easy for me to focus on then she wants me to find fabric people to sell them too. I told her I am good at sharing but not good at selling anything but my ability to drive a rig. She then said wouldn’t you love to see this in a leather drivers seat? Now that in a shiny black rig would keep you awake wouldn’t it :) I am happy just painting and not thinking about pain. I have added it to a canvas print and pillow so we will see if it is just her and I who love trees :)
I am saying a prayer for all of you to stay safe and healthy out there. So many places are destroyed here in the US I can not help but think we need to live differently and be kinder to our place we call home. So many trees and vegetation taken down for more and more homes and businesses just plain crazy what will hold our beautiful countryside together. Washington State had a landslide, where my son lives in JH WY has a huge slide as well and now AL and FL hurting once again never mind Washington DC with flooding. Seems we keep taking hit after hit, tornadoes flattening whole communities and townships. Lives lost. Plant a tree for me if you can, be a rebel, pick a spot where it will be able to dig deep into the earth and be a place of beauty for many years to come. We need to save our earth we need green space and most of all we need to breathe.
Here is my world today May 1 2014
