Praying for a cure….

Just recently my partner’s nephew was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).  I’ve never even heard of this disease until he started going to the doctor & was being tested.  After a few visits to the doc, we found out he had Muscular Dystrophy, but we didn’t know which type.  While we were waiting for the results of which type he has, we couldn’t help but turn to the internet to research more about the disease.  We feared the worst…  The symptoms & signs were all there & then after a few very looonng weeks of waiting, the test results came back & unfortunately it is Duchenne’s.  :( Continue reading

Red Rock Crossing, Sedona AZ

I think Sedona, AZ is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to.  Everything about it is just gorgeous.  The energy, the scenery, the people, the weather..  Even the McDonalds is pretty (and no, I didn’t eat there).

The painting I did below is of Cathedral Rock, from a picture I took at Red Rock Crossing.  (I changed the sky a bit though – giving it a stormy look in the distance).  At the time I was there, I had no idea that I was near one of the 4 energy vortexes in Sedona.  I knew something was special about that place.  You can just feel it in your soul.

I’m lucky I was able to get a few pictures because right when I got there, I slipped on a rock & dropped my film camera into the water and some of my photos were destroyed.  Bummer!

Monsoon in the Distance ~ Pastel

This is a painting I did a few years ago.  It may look familiar to some of you because the picture is from one of my earlier posts Monsoon Season.

I just discovered and I’m hoping it can help with my sales.  Well, I didn’t discover it, but my cousin told me about it.  :)  I think it’s neat that you can buy greeting cards, or even a canvas print through this website.  There is a nice variety of sizes, framing, matting, etc.

Hiking Hocking Hills

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you plan on going to Hocking Hills & have an iphone or probably any other smart phone, you should download the app before you arrive since there is no phone/web service through the area.  But if you’re like me and are still using a dumb dinosaur phone, I advise going to the Visitor Center at the State Park Campground & spending $2 on trail map.  There is camping throughout the area but some of the private campgrounds look abandoned & have real bumpy roads.  Some campgrounds even have mud ruts so deep you might even get your car stuck.  (speaking from experience) Continue reading

Stardust – Northern Lights

Inspired by my grandfather.

12×18 pastel on Wallis paper ~ SOLD

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we’re apart Continue reading

Indian Summer ~ A walk around Lake Katherine

We’ve had quite a few unseasonably warm weekends here in the Midwest that lasted well into November.  This was my last chance to get outside & catch some vibrant fall foliage on this 70 degree day.  So, we packed up our gear & of course we brought Marley with for the walk at Lake Katherine in Palos Heights, IL.

Now that winter is here though, I probably won’t be getting outside as much.  (That is unless Santa brings me my winter boots & snow pants.)  So I’m probably going to take this opportunity to do some more artwork.

Here are a few photos I took

Bunnies are occupying my block….my dog hates it but I love it.

When I came out with my camera, the bunnies got spooked & ran away from me. Except this one.. this one ran toward me to the corner in my yard. (I call this one Charlie because of his unique marking on his face ~ see photo below and you'll understand)

Over the summer someone dumped about 20 domestic bunnies in a field down the street from my house.  I’m guessing the owner of the bunnies may have just started with 2 or 3 and didn’t realize how much bunnies like to uh, Continue reading

All About Marley ~ My Best Friend

Always ready for a good hike ~ Since we like to hike & travel, he gets to see & smell all kinds of places. This is at the Lower Falls in Hocking Hills, Ohio.

I’ve always been an animal lover but ever since I’ve had Marley, I’ve been more passionate about animals & I love them even more.  Especially dogs!!  I have to admit, he is my inspiration for this website.  Just like any other animal lover, I want to save all animals in need of a good home or good health etc.  But the reality is, I can’t.
