Recovery Progress

Today I plan to drive myself to lunch with a friend.  This will be my first big adventure (all by myself) and is a little bit scary.  Oh well,  a person has to start somewhere at some time, right?  I am taking along some ideas for the book.  This image was created using a variety of iPhone apps after taking a photograph of one of my art journal pages that contained a vague view of this horse.  A little transforming and the painting/drawing (below) appeared.   

P.S. Did it!  Drove to lunch all by myself!!!!!!!  And, home again!!!!!  Had a fantastic day!

Good and Not So Good

Good days; bad days.  First one, then the other.  So far today is looking good.

Sunday, June 7, 2015


Seems like everyone who used to blog has moved into other avenues of social media.  I wonder where everyone is.  Is anyone out  there?

Since the coma, the road back to feeling like the "self" I remember is rough.  Hopefully, I will be able to get there from here.  Currently, I am looking for a hobby--one to occupy my mind and take me away from real life while immersed in creativity..  Needlepoint, cross stitch or embroidery might work.  Drawing is an option also and perhaps painting again.  Holding a Big Boy camera is difficult. My iPhone and iPad are great for creating and I am leaning in that direction.  I want to pull out all the stops and go with mixed media.  So, dear friends, if you are out there, all I can say is: "We shall see...."

I have a still life photograph in the making.  Today I will watch the light and get everything ready for creating an image.  I look forward to posting soon.

Digital Painting

This painting was done using my iPad and several apps including Procreate and Leonardo.  I am excited about possibilities.  My "style" of painting is evident and by doing digital paintings the possibility of others being copycats is significantly minimalized.  Oh it feels really good getting back to painting and painting using this new form of expression is thrilling--what an adventure!

On the Other Side of a Coma

The big question is:
What to do?  Not just what does a person want to do, but what CAN one do?  Big difference between those two things!  Dreaming is easy.  Reality...not so simple.

Healing Is Hard Work

So sorry for not posting recently.  I have been very sick.  All energies are being channeled into healing.

During this time, I am thinking about different ways of creating.  How exciting it is to move into new dimensions.  I will post results as soon as I can.
