hey...

     It's spring, and it's cold outside. I'm thinking I should make a post.



     Lots has changed, but I am still me. I need to warm up to the idea of letting it all hang out again, though I'm sure nobody is reading anymore. That's okay, because this was always here for me to chronicle my existence. I can share a secret with you, maybe that'll help to break the ice...

   
     I love the show 'Jerseylicious'.


     Pure lunacy, I know. But there is something about those gaudy girls that I can't get enough of!!!!! It's got to be the Italian blood coursing though my veins that first attracted me to the show... but here I am, a bona fide fan. ugh.


     So besides my complete lack of taste in television, I've been painting on canvas again. I still take photos every single day, but now I also paint. I needed it after my Mom died. An outlet if you will. I have a few pieces that I'm concurrently working on, but I've needed a break from that too. I've been sketching and creating other art with photos and paint markers. Just a bunch of weird shit. I've turned to art BIG TIME to help move on with my life. Galleries, museums, books about art history and collecting. I've even added a new addition to my small collection. It's a huge photograph from the artist Paulo Ventura.

An edition of ten from the series 'Behind the Walls' by Paulo Ventura







     Other things are happening too. I have some serious health issues, but I don't want to talk about it. Every day is a gift. Every fucking day. Since my issues with my crappy health have arisen, I've been shooting the love dolls and people a little less. But in the last few weeks, I have been ready to get back into it full swing despite my body's failures.



I've missed you.


xoxo

I still check in to see if you are still here, huge huge fan. It took awhile to find your other blogging place, you can hide but... Would love to see the paintings you are working on some day. I hope you can recover from whatever is wrong, the world needs you. Muneca

And I have missed you! Good to hear you are alive and doing well, back to the art again are you..., me too. I've taken a break from blogging, but I continue to shoot when I can. Since my stroke (almost seven years ago) I take each day as a blessing, one more day to share with the people I love. So take each day as a blessing, tell someone you love that you love them. And each day that's not so good..., well you're still on the right side of the grass. Love ya kiddo!

Not sure whether the 'I've missed you' is you speaking to yourself or you reaching out to your followers ... if it is the latter, missed you too Stacy Leigh. Glad your back, stay strong, you belong.

Beautiful Stacy Leigh, please believe me when I say there is love and inspiration for everyone who knows you. From the depths of my heart, I can honestly say your photographs and personality will always resign within me forever. Not only have you let me embrace my own love of realism in dolls, you helped me be open and share the beauty they hold through your eyes. Thank you for your blog, and please don't feel ignored.
