Haven't posted anything for awhile. I've been having totally unexpected health issues that have thrown me for a loop. But after seeing a specialist last week, I am heartened that he doesn't think it's as serious as was first reported.

The first thing I did when I got home was get out my paint and begin a picture.I haven't touched a brush in a month and I was afraid if I didn't start again, I would lose interest.

I started with something that I considered simple, but  it was very well received by my friends, Often the ones that I do the quickest turn out to be the most liked.

But it seems that regardless of how you feel about your work, inevitably there will be someone who likes it. Perhaps that's why I like painting so much. There's always been some sort of validation that keeps me going.

Try to stay cool and enjoy the summer.

Hi Ronnie, im glad to hear you're health issue isn't as bad as you thought it might be!!  That's always scary!  One of the best things about TAC is all the positive validation we give each other...it helps me to try even harder! Xo
