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

The Hawks Stare

Last November I went out walking around Catigny Gardens and came across a hawk that was perched up on a tree branch, probably no more than 10 feet up from the ground.  I don’t think I’ve ever been that close to a hawk before and I was surprised by how LARGE those birds really are!  The wingspan of Red Tailed Hawks is usually around 4ft in length and let me just say, I got chills when the hawk flew off the branch it was perched on because it flew right over my head & I felt the wind from it’s flapping wings go right down the back of my neck!!!!  It was Awesome!

    

My hawk is a little bit fat in comparison, but oh well

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 fineartamerica.com 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.

La Jolla? Sunset Cliffs?

I’m embarrassed to admit, but I forgot where I took this photo.  I don’t know if it’s La Jolla or Sunset Cliffs in San Diego.  Does anybody recognize it?

Regardless of where it is, I did a painting of it.  Actually, a 2nd painting of it now that I have better art supplies.  I’m just hoping to have this mystery solved so that I don’t sound so stupid when asked, where is this?

So if anyone out there knows where this is, can you please let me know?

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
