life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

Out of my comfort zone....

"Leaning int Antiquity" 13 x 30                        "No. 3"  40 x 60
And the “girls” are done!  One clay sculpture…”Leaning into Antiquity” because she really is leaning and I just cannot seem to get her straight…and  “No. 3”  because it is the third time I have painted over another picture and the three squares…evidence of last year’s submission.  A 40 x 60 canvas…is giant for me… when my comfort zone is in the 16 x 20-ish zone.  But then that is what Nude Nite is all about for me…getting out of my comfort zone!  They are submitted….which means that the fingernail chewing has officially begun… Last year’s sculpture that I submitted last year was rejected, but since then it has sold, and another of my sculptures was juried into an exhibition at the Osceola Art Center…so I got a little brave built up and am going to give it another go.  Cross your fingers!
