Walls that talk!

I have been at it again!

This is some recent work that I just finished and shipped out.

Things have been a little hectic lately, we have had some bad news in our family and been dealing with many days at the hospital and getting things in order. Some of you may remember from an earlier post that I had lost my aunt to cancer in September. Well, My uncle(her husband and my mom's brother) just found out he has a brain tumor. Talk about a shock! Our family has had so much heart ache and pain watching my aunt and her long battle with cancer and now this. My poor poor uncle, he is just so beside himself and can't hardly handle it. This has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my life and it really feels like hell is here. My aunt(41) and uncle(42) are only 5 years older than myself and I am an only child so you can only imagine how close I am with them. Everyday lately has been full of pain and not knowing. I know that we are full of the not knowings everyday of our life, but when someone is sick or if you know for sure they are dying the not knowing is null and void and it is just plain and simple reality. It is hard watching someone deal with cancer, but it is even harder excepting the fact they might not be here for another birthday, Christmas, family dinner, a friendly chat or just knowing that you can call and talk to them anytime you want.

Everyday I try and remind myself that we are all in the same place really, you just don't know when your time is up! So, like I said before "always tell the one's dearest to you that you love them and don't ever take life for granted"!

I know one thing for sure though and that is how I feel when I am working and painting. I just get lost and feel so free and at peace with life. I know I am going to start something and finish it and it will be absolutely full of life, heart and soul.

So, take a look and enjoy and I will continue being inspired by all things beautiful and whimsical!

Please keep our family in your prayers and thank you all for your support!
