Wednesday Sept 19, 2013

On DAY 5 of this nastystupidcrappyyukky touch of a head cold.  (Wait... did I say touch?  Touched with a sledgehammer, maybe.)  This 'thing' has taken my sleep, my thoughts, my balance, my sense of taste and my gumption.  And to top it all off?  I sound like Froggy from the Lil Rascals!  I don't even feel like painting. (omg, you know it has to be bad!)

SO...I will tell you whats new.  Or at least what was new before the crud set in...

I gave the painting of the little girl on the beach, (see last post) to my sister, (for her birthday) who is always at my First Fridays and is one of my biggest fans.  I thought of her as I was painting it.  She loves kids, and just looked like something she would like.  AND, BONUS!  I think she does!


Next, is the big surprise I told you about.  Well it was a surprise, but only half of one, because between my schedule, the weather, and this 'crud' that has been keeping me on "SUBDUE".
My friend Dale wanted to give his girlfriend, Lisa an early birthday present.  So while they were on vacay, I was supposed to do a Detroit Tiger painting on the shed.  
The night I wanted to do it, and it was beautiful out, I unfortunately had to be at the funeral home. So the next night was rainy.  The next night I got this done, before it started to blow and big heavy clouds came:
With all good intentions for the next evening and the weekend, I then came down with the crud.
It looks unfinished. 
I wanted to paint the trim or put a baseball behind the "D" or something, but I could barely get up off the couch, much less paint something on a step ladder.
As it was, Lisa came home last night and was thrilled and surprised with what she had, but I told her we could finish it anyway she wanted.  I really didn't mean to leave it like this, although if I was going to stop mid stream, this would be the place. And Lisa can decide how she'd like to see it.  I will post when we decide to finish it off.  


The benefit auction item was for our own Fire Dept Capt who is battling leukemia.  I wanted to donate a piece of art and wasn't sure what to do... but happened to see a nekkid birdhouse in my art room and knew right then, what had to be done...:
It was finished with my last ounce of energy, before I deflated.  But, I was glad I was able to help, and I happen to know who got it and they are thrilled! ANOTHER BONUS!  If you could, please keep our Capt. in your thoughts and prayers, that would be the biggest BONUS of all.  Thank you.

PS: Remember I told you, last post, that the universe sends me SUNSHINE in funny ways?  I thought of that statement this morning when the first email I opened said, "Here ya go, Sunshine..."
