AS IT STANDS

Since my first painting yesterday turned out to be a bit morbid, I decided to flip it over and try something with a bit more life to it. The first image is what I was going for in my head. As you can see in the second image of my painting, I totally NAILED IT!…

FREEDOM

This is a little mixed-media painting I did today with my Aunt who is in town. She does water color and must say, all of her work is beautiful. I tried my hardest to dabble in water color, but it just wasn’t working out as I had planned. I am a bit out of practice, but in…

PAINTED

I poked my head around the corner of the coffee pot and saw a cup I painted years ago. Funny how things change when you look back. I painted this while manic and thought it was hideous at the time. Not so much anymore. If I can do this to a coffee cup, I wonder…

TOMORROW’S TOO LATE

I heard you wrestled with your heart again, we’re dressing ourselves with armor tomorrow, long-lost shieldless friend. I heard your mind has gone astray again, we’re placing the wheels back on their tracks tomorrow, long-lost wayward friend. I heard crickets on the sidelines again, we’re listening to them speak in tongues tomorrow, long-lost forgotten friend. I heard you gathered gold on…

THIS IS A JOB FOR ALCOHOL

God, that was fun. 5-hour rendezvous with my cravings tonight. Good times. My head went numb thinking about it all. I had it all planned out for hours. I have really deep stuff to dig into and I want to write, but feel I cannot begin without lubricating my mind. So, what did I do? I…

FOUR CHAMBERED PAGE

Goodbye love, my conquerable friend. I’m on an unfamiliar road yet I’ve misplaced you once again. … If you’ve shut your eyes without me, you were never mine to keep. I lay awake with the masses yet I am counting the black sheep. … I wanted you to stay in this field of cast aways and armored souls a’flame. Now I’ve surrendered all I…

HEADS-UP

Most things I worry about never happen anyway – Lincoln landed on the legal beagle, Heads-Up this very day. Four score and seven months ago, this gal was riding with fear in tow – Now my plates have been restored, Tails Down – freedom finally scored.

BATON

The passing of the child like a baton to win the race against who will take her last. Treating her like a cast away to erase your troubled past. Thank you for all the help to those that came before. Casting me out into the wild only to wash up on the shore. You preserve your future to live another…

SPRING ANTIQUITY

I am going shopping today to check out the latest eye candy at Antiques at Silver Bell Farm. They have the most beautiful and natural displays I have ever seen, as you can see from just the entrance alone. This should lift my mood a bit. I don’t have a lot of money these days, so taking…

PARK

This is the last photo I posted before I went into my second round of Mental Hospitals for 3.5 weeks or so, on exactly this date last year after my manic run out West. Very fitting as it’s a PARK sign on the Hospital Ground’s pavement. Everything came to a screeching halt that day. Every dream,…

MEDUSA’S ON THE TABLE

Treat it as if the liquored puzzle won Medusa’s on top of the table and the geodes are in the back so the dream catchers can tell their fables and can catch the rising sun … See the loons out on the lake they’ve come to sound in pairs they swim around Paul Bunyan in his sneaky lake-making affairs … The…
