Painting My World with My Heart~

I wanted to say hello with a little diversion in gouache and watercolor whilst wading thru the ups and downs of illness. I’m definitely seeking a light at the end of the tunnel. I should say scope. I hope my doctor finds some anyway!


I am trying to accept some realities that I’d prefer to not need. To make my life easier(I’m told). It’s time for the “serious meds”. What fun!


I’ve spent a lot of this past year suffering with inflammatory bowel disease that has come out of remission. Boring I know. It has kept me from most everything I’d like to do and forced me to visit my gastroenterologist too many times! I am lucky as he’s been my GI doc for at least 25 years! He’s a good one and listens. Rare these days!


Best to focus on things that create joy… our new gardening project(s) 👩🏼‍🌾, painting LOOSE in acrylics finally.

That is getting me out of my mess‼️🎨

Go see! Robert Burridge!

And sitting in the sunshine, watching my roses come to life!

I will share my paintings soon… have to put them together with a camera or remember my iPad can do that. Ah, technology.


Be well, friends… your health is worth your attention!

    Your painting of the racing creatures is very cool with the rabbits being my favourites! I’m sure you see a number of them scooting around on a regular basis. Nothing like a good mess, eh? I quite enjoyed the Robert Burridge video too. Unfortunately, I have no acrylics or I’d try it myself – with the understanding his kind of retrieving a painting from such chaos requires a lot of skill.

    I do hope you get through the hospital procedures smoothly and I also send you very best wishes on your soon to be birthday. May the family visit bring you much cheer.

    Love and OOOOOs!

      Thanks, sweet Susan. They’re fun to paint but I have a vivid imagination, listening to them each night. Ummm, that gets old but I would miss it too! Ah yes, I certainly do see many tho so far this spring, they haven’t been around… no worries, I just don’t see them in the tall grass. 🙃🐰

      Yeah, acrylics are also a real mess… I paint standing up. It is fun tho and very unlike wc because you just cover up what you don’t like! I like that! 😁 he is very skillful but since I’m not doing much right now, I’ve enjoyed his crazy ability!
