This blog entry is a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the heavenly powers that be for giving me my love of art and my humble abilities to create it. Without painting as a distraction, a harbinger of hope, and a passer of time, I truly believe I'd be a basket case right now.
It amazes me that while my right brain has been stressing, worrying, overthinking, and "awfulizing", my left brain has still been able to see through fresh eyes, create anew, and maintain its critical balance.
During this awful time after my own surgery and then Kelsey's, I have done a painting that I am extremely pleased with. Maybe because it is nature at its most healing and full of peace. I haven't named it yet; that will come when it is truly ready to varnish and frame.
Till then, I will baby it along like I have my shoulder and my puppy, till all of us are whole.
