The bad, the ugly, and the totally cute

I have been slack in updating the blog lately. Shame on me, I know. But it’s a rainy Friday morning and I’ve got my latte and pictures to share with you guys.

Much of my time has been spent working on art. I feel really fortunate that I can put this much time and effort into it. Now I just need to sell things so I can maintain a budget for paint and brushes.

The bad: Sadly, at least as much of my time has been spent in the purgatory space of migraine headaches. I did something new though– I overlapped migraine time with art time. There’s a ton of art done by migraine sufferers, expressing the sensations of it or created during an attack. Here are some examples: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2008/02/28/opinion/20080222_MIGRAINE_SLIDESHOW_2.html

The ugly: Here is my first migraine painting.

This was one of the quickest paintings I’ve ever done. It really surprised me. In a weird way, I like it.

And to end today on a high note, The totally cute:

Bugg and Lys

A shout out to my dearest Elyse. Happy birthday!! I love you!
