Wow! So when life gets crazy…..it gets CRAZY!!! I am so sorry. I dropped the ball on the Big 20/20 Event. I got really sick and just when I thought when I was coming out of it I got worse and then my kids got it!
And then my son was bit by a rat…..I’ll just throw that odd comment out there! ha ha But it is true. I was in the doctors office twice in a day. Once with my oldest son sick and then with my second one to get a tetanus shot and antibiotics!
Then one of my son’s best friends passed away. It just knocked the wind out of me. I don’t know how else to explain it. It hit me hard bringing back many of my own feelings from when my mom passed away, and it hit my son harder, which then hit me even harder. And then it hit me hard thinking about his mama. She is such a beautiful soul. Through it all she has been so worried about her husband, daughter, and all the teens he knew. Her and her husband opened their phone and home to anyone who needs to talk. People keep asking her how it is that she is doing OK and she just keeps pointing to God and how He is giving her strength. She is one of the bravest women I know. And her and her husband raised an awesome boy!!! This kid was beautiful, sweet, could hold the most amazing conversations, witty, sarcastic, funny as anything and well all I can say is he is definitely one person that I can not wait to give a big hug to when I walk through those pearly gates. He gave the best hugs! It is so funny how EVERYONE who has left messages on all the social media sites has talked about him and his hugs! He is surly missed!
With all that has gone on lately I have found again that painting is so healing for me. It just gives me time to think, pray, I feel I am accomplishing something and creating something beautiful. It heals my heart to pour myself and my emotions out on paper. I truly believe that things like art and music are Gods gifts to us to not only help ourselves but to share to with others. It evokes such feelings. I am very thankful for my creative side and feel very blessed in that area.
Well with all that I want to share a few paintings I have done lately just playing around. (wink) I sprayed Dylusions Ink Spray on paper and then just sat staring until I saw something. It’s like looking at the clouds. It is fun and relaxing.
So she stood out to me. I only added 2 lines really. And then just felt like there was nothing else to do. (wink) Never has a piece gone so fast!! ha ha ha
This little guy is such an odd looking fellow! It is so freeing to just paint odd little characters though. It is like being a child again. Of course my daughter explained to me that bears do not eat rabbits…..But I just let her know that a cute little rabbit had just visited him and gave him that as a present. That made total sense to her and she then loved it! (she critiques me all the time. It is hysterical.)
Soooo the last one is this one….I have started working on it already. But I am curious when you look at this blob of ink what do you see?? I will show you what I see when I am done with the painting.
I will post the last tutorial in just a bit.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
