Beautiful! Hope your surgery is good.

MPO - Thanks so much for commenting. I had to have some more carcinoma removed. This time from my face and shoulder. I look like I either was in a bar fight, or got a nose-job!

Well Lawrence, you've been in those bar fights before, get out of there and do your work! You are a happy, successful, loved and virile man, Your Marylin is great - please read together the book Love and Survival by Dr. Dean Ornish, M.D. I've been trough a long years of personal drama - have lost my sister, my husband, mom, and dad - in this order, and when 26 alone with my daughter, I had a family history of 34 serious surgeries. During this sad hospital experience I've noticed that those who give up - die. So, choose life, Skylar, and go for it! It is really that simple and easy! Art is the best path to recover. Give us more of your white exclusive roses and calming, meditative waters. You are the artist, who paints very deep feelings. This work is fabulous - a dreamed water, I can hear the relaxing sound. Always your friend, Valia.

Skylar, I don't think I can say it any better than dear Valia did, so I will reinforce her words. Please be well, optimistic and your usual happy self. You have my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery from the "bar fight" ... :)

on 13 Sep 2010 7:24 AM

How beautiful Skylar!  The water falling over the rocks and the reflections in the water are just wonderful!  Thanks for sharing your work with us!  I hope you have learned your lesson and will stay out of those gay bars for goodness sakes!  I wish you the very best!  Heal quickly and get back to work!!!!!

Kristin, Deborah, Gene, Sharon, Muna, Margo, Abraham, LiliAnne, Tera, Daniel, Kit, Valia, Kika, Sarah, Elayne -

I am so warmed by all of your responses. Both because I am quite pleased with this series, and because of your good will. Recovery is proceeding as expected.

Except for Valia's rose, haven't really gotten back to "work" yet.

on 13 Sep 2010 10:05 AM

Deb - I actually find water quite a challenge. There are so many "Mercurial" aspects to consider when trying to get a realistic effect.

on 13 Sep 2010 10:07 AM

Sharon - I just had to step back for a moment. There is a lot going on in my personal life, and I needed to take a few breaths.

I have always loved this forum because of you and others who make me feel so welcome.

on 13 Sep 2010 10:11 AM

Valia - That "Well, Lawrence" had me smiling. That is the way my mother addressed me when she was displeased with me. (Of course, I never gave her reason to feel that way!) 

I will always choose the light. My glass is always half-full. My toast lands Butter-Side up. 

on 13 Sep 2010 10:17 AM

Daniel   - Thank you so much for all the support you give. I'm glad you are part of our community. Your art really adds a most unique and wond erful aspect to the forum.

Daniel- Muchas gracias mran parte de todo el apoyo que dan . Me alegro de que forman parte de nuestra comunidad . Su arte , aporta un aspecto poderosos más singular y wond en el foro.

on 13 Sep 2010 10:20 AM

Sarah - Thanks!!! I think I've seen my last bar fight.

on 13 Sep 2010 10:22 AM

Elayne - I'm so happy you liked this piece. It is a beautiful setting. Hard to believe it's a Medical complex.

Well, Lawrence - we are not here, because you've had this surgery - it will go away soon and be forgotten even by you, but we are here because You Are a Great Artist, and that will last forever! I am sure you will now be even better with the new Power of Perception! Have in mind after surgeries usually there is an explosion of optimistic excitement, but in a while many people, facing everyday life, give up and get depressed - this is forbidden for you! Keep on working, one more rose for me please - a silky one, thank you in anticipation, and thank you for the white rose - it is so touching!

My husband was hospitalized for quiet a while a couple of years ago.  While "living" in the hospital I learned that there were several garden areas that I would love to paint.  I have always thought that I would get back to paint them but havn't so far.  But yes there is beauty found in so many places!  Keep up the beautiful work!

This is have a way with light.  And might I just say I love the "toast lands butter side up" phrase, 'cause it's a real bummer when it doesn't and that sucker sticks to the floor.   Keep that positive outlook.  It's contagious, and it shows in your work.

on 17 Dec 2010 10:58 AM

Steff - Thank you so much. To me, Light makes or breaks a painting.  (And - I've been thru some harrowing things in my life as most of us have, but my bottom line is still that the glass is half full.)
